Stamp.TV: Tihane (Live Cali Session)

I first met the Polynesian-Croatian-American soul artist Tihane, aka Marushka, through her former Nairobi-based music group Cosmic Homies, it was through her that I ended up in Nairobi back in 2017 and she showed me around and all the amazing music the city had to offer. Now Tihane spends her time between Nairobi, Cali where she grew up and all over the world, including Hawaii where her family are from. I have always been obsessed with her voice and musicality, she has an incredibly rich and soulful voice that puts her alongside Nai Palm, India Arie and Amy Winehouse for me. I could listen to her sing all day. Tihane recorded this beautiful session for us and here she described it in her own words:

“This acoustic baritone ukulele set was inspired by my last trip to my homeland of Hawaii and the trip I took before that, to my newer home-away-from-home, Ghana. As a mixed culture artist, it’s my tendency to blend, brew and bend genres and influences. My life is a series of comings and goings and finding home wherever I am. The sound of my ukulele teleports me to my deepest presence, no matter how far around the world I’ve wandered or what I’ve weathered. This set was recorded in Los Angeles, California ~ in one of my best friend’s living rooms with her velvety, midnight coated cat, Nina Simone, curled up on the couch beside me. This set features 3 original songs and 1 cover, weaving the story of a woman whose love transmutes all fear. I hope it soothes and warms whomever sips it. And offers shelter from the storm.”
