Born in Campo Grande in the center of Brazil, Thamires Tannous is a singer and songwriter, owner of a clear and deep voice. She grew up close to the forests, rivers and waterfalls of her region, developing a very deep connection with nature, one of the pre-eminent topics of her songs.

At the age of 2, she appeared in a video performing for the first time, using a key as a microphone. At 4, she was already composing songs on her mother's piano, and at 8, she began studying violin, an instrument she played for 5 years until discovering her voice during performances with the orchestra in which she played. Since then, singing has been her mission on Earth.

Her music is a unique combination of her roots and diverse musical influences, resulting in an unique voice and style that captivates audiences with its depth and beauty. Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Tom Jobim, and Elis Regina were always present in her mother's discography. In her father's, there were modas de viola, chamamés, guarânias, boleros, serestas, and Arab songs, the latter influenced by her grandfather who came from Lebanon to Brazil in the 1950s, and her great- grandparents from both sides of the family.

She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Popular Singing from Souza Lima College in São Paulo. She also studied jazz and improvisation for 1 semester in France, at the school of the great violinist Didier Lockwood. There, she met Vincent Segal, a cellist who has contributed to artists such as Cesária Évora, Ballaké Sissoko, and Sting, with whom she later recorded and performed.
In 2014, she released her debut album "Canto para Aldebarã," which pays homage to her family's Lebanese cultural heritage. Produced by Dante Ozzetti, and with the participation of renowned musicians such as Toninho Ferragutti, Ivan Vilela, and Ricardo Herz, the album features Arab percussion arrangements mixed with contemporary Brazilian melodies and lyrics. It received great
reviews from critics, being placed on lists of best albums of the year in Brazil, and also winning the
Grão de Música award in 2015, with the song "JÁ DEU!".

In 2019, she released her second album "Canto-correnteza," produced by the guitarist and award- winning producer Michi Ruzitschka. The album accompanies a fine blend of Afro-Brazilian percussion with a rich diversity of Brazilian rhythms and features the participation of singer Chico César, cellist Vincent Segal, and accordionist BB Kramer.

At the end of 2021, she was selected for the "Making Tracks Music" project, an environment- focused artistic residency and tour in the UK, where she collaborated with 7 other musicians from different parts of the world. The tour resulted in a live album, digitally released in 2022.

She currently lives between São Paulo and Vienna, where she performs with her original project, and is working on creating her third album. In 2022, she released the single "É só deixar" featuring the flutist Carlos Malta, and in 2023, the single "Bebuia" which features the Senegalese Kora player Momi Maiga and the guitarist Michi Ruzitschka.
