Tara Lily defies categorization. This British-Bengali singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist is a force of nature, weaving a mesmerizing range of sound that reflects her own rich heritage. Raised in South London by music-loving parents, Tara was exposed to a potent blend of Bengali folk, rock, and jazz from a young age. This upbringing fostered a deep love for music and a natural inclination to explore and experiment.

However, Tara's journey has had its challenges. As a woman of color navigating the often homogenous music industry, she's felt like an outsider. Yet, this hasn't dampened her spirit. Fueled by an unwavering determination and a desire to carve her own path, Tara has emerged as a truly unique artist. Her music transcends genre, seamlessly blending soulful vocals, cascading piano melodies, and hints of Indian classical music with elements of drum and bass and R&B. This artistic alchemy reflects Tara's own identity – a fusion of cultures and influences, all brought together with a captivating sense of fluidity and purpose.
