Vagabon
Vagabon
Vagabon, the moniker for multi-instrumentalist, Lætitia Tamko, was born in late 2014 during her final years of engineering school. Currently living in New York City via Cameroon, Tamko’s cultural duality and engineering background informs her inspirations as a musician and a producer. Blending elements of west and east African music from her childhood with punk as well as electronic leaning instrumentation, Vagabon songs vary in themes and genre.

In November 2014, Tamko self-released an EP, “Persian Garden”, a collection of the first songs she had ever written. “Persian Garden” caught the attention of a larger than imagined audience which led Vagabon to a couple of U.S tours and several Northeast tours.

Tamko recently finished recording her first album, where she is the writer, co-producer and main performer of all instruments.
Tasha
Tasha
Raised in Chicago, TASHA started out where many notable Chicago artists have- participating in Young Chicago Authors at just 15. “It was writing and performing that allowed me to appreciate and love my blackness,” says TASHA. In 2016, TASHA released her first project, Divine Love. Armed with an electric guitar, she seamlessly incorporates poetry into her sets; speaking on Black joy, self-love, and radical softness. Her work for nonprofit, BYP100, is also a source of inspiration for TASHA’s art. She believes in a world without police and prisons, and uses her art, above all else, as a vessel for revolution, liberation, and love.
