TamWah, tonight, Kulture Jam

Tamara Williams aka TamWah will play a tribute gig in remembrance of her husband Shawn Williams (MC Shawn Wills), 32, who drowned at Suffolk Park beach two years ago.

The gig represents a cycle of healing. The recently released album, A Different World, began as a creative collaboration between the two artists before Shawn’s death on 11 May 2010. While overcoming the tragic loss TamWah set out to complete the project, which features hip-hop, neo-soul and Brazilian beats.

‘Shawn felt a unique sense of peace and happiness here in Byron, something I think we can all relate to,’ says TamWah. ‘His passing constantly reminds me to live and enjoy life while we’re still here.’

TamWah will be supported on the night by Nakula and Pure Velour, local artists who will play original music inspired by Latin and Asian influences.

See TamWah at Kulture Jam in the Byron Arts and Industry Estate, Friday.
