Pearl-endorsed artist Gianna Tam is one of a kind, in more ways than one. A woman on drums and percussion rocking lead vocals at the same time is a sight for sore eyes, don’t you agree? Often described as ‘The Dutch Sheila E.,’ Tam is honored by such compliments, but ready to spread her own wings and let us dance to the beat of her drum on August 5 at De Observant.
Born in Amsterdam, the dummer, singer and percussionist started playing with her father Lucas van Merwijk’s projects from the age of 16. From there on out she grew to play with giants such as Candy Dulfer, Jett Rebel, Shirma Rouse and Trijntje Oosterhuis. Now it’s time to take center stage to present Gianna Herself; tropical, sweet, sensual, daring and colorful!
