Fusion vocalist and songwriter Miriam Tamar creates empowering, expansive soundscapes that journey through the intense colors and vibrant rhythms of world culture. Her songs mingle the vivid textures of alt pop, R&B, electronic, folk, dance and world music that reflect her travels around the globe and the emotional journeys she has taken. In her recordings and live performances, Miriam’s otherworldly voice dips beneath and floats above sparkling instrumental layers. By mixing contagious melodies and harmonies with bold beats and personal lyrics about the love, sorrow, joy and hope that connects humanity, she inspires others to be courageous and explore the magic of unexpected, energizing experiences that push them beyond borders. Miriam incorporates the instruments of both the western and eastern world into her music, which reflects her passion for cultural exchange and chronicles her own evolution as a conscious artist and passionate humanitarian.
Her latest EP, Firedance, which debuted in the Top 5 of the iTunes World Music chart, features four thought-provoking tracks about the power of metamorphosis and the universal quest to find a sense of meaning even in the midst of chaos. The collection integrates diverse elements such as world fusion instrumentation, percussion and chanting structures in order to express Miriam’s own on-going transformation and the ties to issues of social justice and her belief in global citizenry.
She recently released a live studio session video series of Firedance, as a follow up to the official music video for her single, "Who We," which amassed over 500,000 YouTube views. In addition to writing and recording more solo projects, Miriam is currently working on a collaborative world music album with GNL Zamba.
