Tam Echo Tam: Dawn

One Day Life
Master Blaster
Sans Toi
El Trabajo del Amor
L' Ultima Danza
Du Tout au Tout
On Mis Longtemps
Be Your Friend

The blossoming music scene in Brussels, an exciting cultural melting pot, has given birth to mixed-voice quartet Tam 'Echo' Tam, two men and two women of French, Guayanese, Moroccan and Zairian origin. Valerie, Aline, Larbi and Daniel use their solid mastering of vocal expression to create an eclectic repertoire that combines elements from African roots music, American folk-bop, French chanson, gospel and jazz. 12 songs, some favorites are the bluesy title tune, joyous finger-popping "One day life," the inspirational guitar accompanied "Blessed," a rhythmic, street corner take on Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster;" the ethereal "Quando" and "Yvan" the spicy, slightly greasy "El trabajo del amor," the surreal "L'ultima danza," the bluesy French "Du tout au tout," the kind-of-depressed reggae tune "On a mis longtemps," and the guitar accompanied heartbreaker "Be your friend." We love the cover photo of these beautiful young singers mugging, grinning and having fun with each other-it sets the tone for "Dawn," a not too serious, singing together on a sunny afternoon in Brussels kind of album. That is, big fun!
