Tired of Britney & top 40? Support New Zealand Maori Tama...
- Zine editors/writers:
A new, small independent music label (ObliqSound- www.obliqsound.com) with a unique artist from New Zealand needs your support!
Tama Waipara mixes tribal beats, Shakespeare, classic poetry, electronica, jazz, R&B, worldbeat, his own tribal language, etc. into a mix that doesn't exactly scream Top 40! But what we can tell you is that "Nobody sounds like Tama."
So how can you help?
* Review the CD- we will send editors/writers a CD for you to review.
* Come to a gig- see below.
* Check out the music for yourself on the website.
* Interview Tama
* Or we can forward an extensive (non-shilling!) ready for publication interview for your zine (the interview is also about Maori culture- not just music).
We appreciate your support. Check him out for yourself and help break a major talent who deserves greater exposure.

Nobody Sounds Like Tama:
With Tama Waipara's upcoming release Triumph of Time on ObliqSound (May 4, 2004), the New Zealand born singer/guitarist/composer unleashes his unique musical vision.
Tama has a growing New York fan base and has garnered critical praise for his live shows in such distinguished venues as Joe's Pub (at the legendary Public Theater) and world music venue Satalla. The evening marks his second appearance at Makor.
He has made repeated appearances on The Light Show (WBAI-FM) and in December 2003 was invited to perform live on a WBAI benefit that featured such musical mavericks as Roy Ayers and Groove Collective.
Triumph of Time is generating excitement both within the industry and in record buyers who pride themselves on their adventurous musical tastes. Tama will be performing selections from the album and new original material.
