A revelation. No sooner had Tamino-Amir Moharam Fouad been voted a finalist of De Nieuwe Lichting 2017 at Studio Brussel than he sold out the AB Club. The Antwerp singer-songwriter has a Belgian mother and English father. It was his mother who brought him into contact with opera and theatre, while the music genes lie on his father's side. His grandfather Moharam Fouad was a well-known singer in Egypt. Tamino studied at the Amsterdam Conservatory. During the De Nieuwe Lichting competition he impressed with his ability to transform I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor by Arctic Monkeys into a moving ballad. And with his voice that soars so seemingly effortlessly from the low notes to the high. His firt ep hold two hits - Habibi and Cigar - and guides him straight to the top of the charts and a hefty festival summer.
