Draped in a Caribbean breeze palms sway in the misty air. Sounds of the waves pounding on the shore. A distinct rhythm is heard from a distance is it native drums or the sound of venus rising out of the sea. It's a time gone by. It's past midnite in Club Havana a smoke filled dance hall over looking the sea. People have paired up for the night dancing close. Enters the chantuce she begins to sing her torch songs to relax them into..... Tamara adds the right blend of sensuality and contemoporary spice to create a fresh vintage, cool latin sound. A world beat in a romantic way. Your Essence is Tu Esencia. This music is latin jazz,mambos,boleros,bossa novas. Tu Esencia Tamara's CD was a labor of love a tribute to her parents. These original songs are reminiscent of the songs that played in her parents apartment in New York City.
