Brooklyn born and bred artist Tamar-kali is a second generation musician with roots in the coastal Sea Islands of South Carolina. As a composer she has defied boundaries to craft her own unique alternative sound. The aggressive, melodic rock of her ‘five piece’ outfit enchants you with its melody while delivering a swift kick to the gut with its incisive emotional core. Her debut LP Black Bottom challenged the alt-rock norm. The pieces she composes and arranges for her string sextet and voice project, Psychochamber Ensemble, marries the classical music of her Catholic upbringing with post-punk sensibilities.
2017 marked her debut as a film score composer with her work on Dee Rees’s Academy Award-nominated winning her the World Soundtrack Academy’s Discovery of the Year Award. Subsequent film scores include Joshua Marston’s Come Sunday starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Martin Sheen, The Lie directed by Veena Sud, the documentary and three films which premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2020: The Last Thing He Wanted directed by Dee Rees, by Josephine Decker and by Kitty Green. Tamar-kali is currently scoring Mixtape and her opera We Hold These Truths for the LA Opera’s Digital Shorts programme will premiere in spring 2022.
