The Ultra Violet EP is the second electronic EP released by Harlem artist, Tamara Renée. The Ultra Violet EP blends electronic, funk, jazz, hip-hop, trip-hop, soul, blues and reggae, creating a deliciously mystifying and mood altering experience. Violet is the color of the 7th, crown chakra and the  highest frequency in the visible spectrum, it  is a point of alchemy and self-transformation. Violet is wholeness, completion, illumination and rebirth. The Ultra Violet EP is an offering, a mantra of the new age-the golden age. In making the EP, Tamara embarked on an initiation in which she emerged from the nine realms of darkness, letting go of a depression and instead entering the void of fearlessness, magic and illumination.
 
As an artist, Tamara Renée embodies the spirit of the black jaguar bolting herself into the next stage of her journey as a musician, healer, and wild woman. As stated by Maya shaman Ohky Simine Forest, “In the early Maya matriarchal civilization, the jaguar clan was a high cast of priests and priestesses. The jaguar is the greatest feminine shield of all animals. In ancient times, to become a jaguar priest involved mastering the art of shape-shifting. The jaguar is connected to the mysterious, sexual center, and the heart center using the power of pleasure and eroticism to transform the self; tantra.” Tamara has become a shape shifting woman effortlessly embracing wisdoms of ancient traditions and thus transcending genres and mediums as she explores her Self- a being deeply connected to all of her ancestors and the earth. Listen as she sings, howls, purrs, raps, moans, and groans herself into existence.
