TAMTAM is an experimental pop band based in Tokyo. Initially playing reggae/dub music, the band gradually developed into an innovative fusion of diverse musical influences, such as jazz, soul, psyche pop, new age, and exotica. The sound is based on groove and euphoria, with nostalgic melodies. They have performed at iconic events in Japan such as Fuji Rock Festival, and also have been looking overseas since they performed in Canada(Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver) in 2019. 

The new EP "Ramble In The Rainbow"(2024) is their first international release on the US label PPU(People's Potential Unlimited). The day after its release, Gilles Peterson selected the title song for his BBC Radio 6 track list, and Bandcamp Weekly selected TAMTAM for its cover and ran a feature on the album. They were also selected to represent Japan in the "Future of music 2024" nominated by Rolling Stone magazine. The song was also added to many playlists in Japan. The work shows their musical maturity, drawing inspiration from Sun Ra, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and Yasuaki Shimizu.
