Tamino, whose voice may be like nothing we’ve ever heard before, has just released the video for his most recent single Indigo Night. The visually mesmerizing piece, which Tamino says was inspired by paintings from a 1930s-40s art movement in Caïro called “Art & Liberté,” is not meant to retell the hauntingly beautiful story he sings in Indigo Night, but rather it’s to be consumed as an accompaniment of additional imagery.

“Personally I prefer to listen to songs the same way I read books,” said Tamino. “Which is by means of imagination and interpretation, which make the work of art truly yours and speak to you even more. At the same time, I have a big love for film and I do think there is an undeniable beauty of matching a song to a video.”

Tamino, who was raised in Antwerp but comes from both Egyptian and Lebanese families, enjoyed returning to Egypt to film the music video. “It was a wonderful experience making a video in the country of my father,” he said. “I love Caïro, a city of many contrasts and complex, incredible history. I hope this video can serve as a small ode to the city.”

To coincide with the release of the music video, Tamino is also dropping the deluxe version of his most recent album Amir, which you can listen to below.
