About Tissa Rahim

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. Coming from a family of Middle Eastern musicians, my earliest memories are gathering with family over home-cooked meals, and then bringing out instruments such as the Tombak and singing together. I would use anything around me to drum along and sing. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Amy Winehouse, Back To Black Lauryn Hill, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill I'm often called the Persian Amy Winehouse, a huge honour for me. Lauryn's songs helped me expand my capability for intricate vocal runs. The fusion of jazz and hip hop alongside amazing storytelling always brings me back to To Pimp a Butterfly.
