I love music and I love listening music from other countries and in other languages; so wherever I travel and listen to a song I like, I search more songs from this artist or group. This is what happened with Shy'm.
Born as Tamara Martha (November 28, 1985)to a French mother and a French Antillean father (from Martinique), grew up in Trappes (a Paris suburb). Interested in dancing and singing, grew up listening to Zouk and R&B.
At the age of 19 was discovered by French rapper K'Maro, who agreed to feature her in the song "Histoire de Luv" and followed by the release of her first album "Mes Fantasies" (2006) One song of this album, that I love, is "Femme de Couleur": a statement of principles that proclaims her origins.
Her pseudonym is a portmanteau derived from "shy" and the "M" from Martinique. She presents herself as a shy person, but her passion has allowed her to overcome her shyness and she takes "pleasure in putting herself in the crowd"
She has released 2 more albums: "Reflets" (2008) and "Prendre l'Air" (2010), album in which appears the first song I heard from her: "Je sais". I love it! What do you think ?
This November she has won "Danse Avec Les Stars", where she has shown the great dancer she is. But after watching these videos, was there any doubt? Hope you enjoy listening to her as I do
