Summer Love Tahira Jumah (White Label)
Major - My Mood (Disco Volante DVA-5005-CD)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Tahira (pronounced Ta- hear- ah) to hear her is to love her…

By way of introduction to a celebrated artist, this comes short. All we can list are artist worked with, too many to pin point individually, and concrete achievements. We can say ol’ skool, but that isn’t enough, we could say established but that doesn’t show the reality, effervescent, sexy, eerily reminisant of classic vocalists that set a standard. I think we are getting there!

Tahira grew up listening to the dulcet tones of the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, the Neville Brothers and Stevie Wonder. She first set foot on stage at the tender age of four years old during a production which saw her singing and dancing, even then she set her individual print on the performance by insisting on having her dresses hand sewn in a different design and launching into a prepared routine leaving the other young dancers befuddled!! That is one of her strong points a sense of self and humour that the keep spirit up.

Whilst in High School she concentrated on learning her craft, taking dance classes, ballet, Tap, Jazz, in College she specialised in Drama and worked hard modelling and presenting for a fashion house to gain experience on stage. This has set her apart from alot of other aspiring artists, To see Tahira on stage, is to see Tahira in her element. Calm relaxed with consummate skill she takes your hand and weaves the story of each song for you until you feel you have been invited into her home and she is communicating with you as a good friend.

Having now had several years in the business, Tahira has travelled the globe and performed at numerous high profile venues. They include performances for British Royalty, Military Events and Casino’s Head-lining in professional environments with numerous celebrities. Her clients and contempories acknowledge her as the one of the best vocalist on the circuit.

Tahira hails from the United Kingdom, where she had carved a name for herself as an independent artist before launching into the lucrative session and backing vocal circuit. It was here that she really began to learn about music as a business and established a following of her own.

“Summer love” was released as a single and was very well received by audience and Disc Jockeys alike unfortunately lack of funding and a parting of the ways within the record label investing in the project led to the single being unavailable in many places. Moving on, from this.

Tahira again forged a reputation for herself as a tremendous lead vocalist by co writing and performing very ably on an Album released by “Major” on Disco Volante The song “Dark Dreams” which topped “Music Week” charts for several weeks and a stellar performance on the same album of the song “ Four shoes” (Click the link for a review Bzangy Groink » Major - My Mood ) which shows the versatility of her 51/2 octave range. Performing live in various clubs, in the British Isles also Europe she has gained a reputation for originality and professionalism.

In our opinion, Tahira has Class, looks, style and a dynamic voice to match.
