OHAYO TEME TAN !
After accompanying Veence Hanao, Fou Detective and Carl et les Hommes-boîtes on stage and in the studio, it was in Japan that Témé Tan signalled the start of his solo career with the release of his eponymous album. A new adventure marked by the Japanese influence on his stage name: Té for hand, Mé for eyes (and Tan for Tanguy). “Témé Tan” – a name signifying an open mind without limits for this rolling stone who draws as much on encounters as he does on new landscapes:
“Even as a child, I used to travel between Congo and Belgium. My literature studies then allowed me to move to Spain. In Granada, I met people from all over the world. Travelling is still a great source of inspiration today.”
Now based in Brussels, this musician from Kinshasa has also cultivated a taste for adventure in his travels to Brazil, Norway, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras and Guinea, among other countries.
This writer-composer writes his songs on the move, miles away: on planes, trains, boats, on top of a skyscraper or in a forest where he takes the time to lose himself.
