Time & Location
Vagabon is the indie-pop project of Laetitia Tamko. Tamko moved from Cameroon to New York City as a teenager and was inspired to begin recording and performing her original songs after discovering the DIY scene at the Bushwick venue Silent Barn. Tamko’s cultural duality and engineering background informs her inspirations as a musician and a producer. Blending elements of west and east African music with punk and electronic-leaning instrumentation, Vagabon’s powerfully personal songs, buoyed by a soaring, emotional tenor and intricate guitar work, explore questions of community and family from her distinct and original perspective.
