Tamar Kali

Born and raised in Brooklyn with summers spent in the scenic islands off the coast of South Carolina, Tamar-kali cut her teeth on the New York Rock scene with infamous soulcore psychos Funkface circa 1993. Shortly thereafter, the all-boy post hardcore outfit Song of Seven was in danger of disbanding when original frontman ‘Israel’ left to record and perform with the legendary Bad Brains. Tamar-kali was enlisted to add another dimension to Song of Seven’s sound. In time, as the band’s front woman, she established herself in voice and presence as a force to be reckoned with.

Eventually , her strength as a woman in a male dominated genre led to creative conflict and compelled her toward her own expression as a writer and vocalist. She took the occasional break from developing original material to lend her voice in support of such artists as Fishbone and Outkast. The start of 2005 found Tamar-kali heading up her own production company, releasing ‘The Geechee Goddess Hardcore Warrior Soul EP’ on her upstart record label and manning 3 solo projects — the haunting Psychochamber Ensemble, the emotionally wraught Pseudoacoustic Siren Songs and her original; the furious 5-piece.
