Meet Tamara Kumbula in Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tamara Kumbula.

Tamara, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started writing music when I was in school and eventually decided I wanted to pursue it professionally. Initially just writing lyrics and overtime started production. Coming from South Africa, there weren’t as many music schools I wanted to attend so Los Angeles was definitely my first choice.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
So far, I would say I’m definitely more fortunate than others. My family and friends have always supported me and encouraged me to make choices based on what I want but were also very realistic about the problems that come with the entertainment industry. Personally, I think all the struggles I’ve been through have helped shaped my music and I’m grateful for the growth and motivation it instilled in me.

Please tell us about your work.
I am a singer/songwriter/producer. At the moment, I’m most proud of my upcoming album. I really think I have a unique sound that can’t be categorized into one genre, and that to me was my main goal in this project, to show my versatility as an artist and bring something new to the game.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I think my drive to continuously put out better music has helped me grow as an artist a lot. I always try to make each song better than the previous and I definitely think that it has improved the standard and quality of songs I make.
