Summer Chance #4

OOMA invites you to explore the space where soul, jazz and trip hop melt into one. Expect to hear tight grooves perforated by high flying moments of improvisation, ethereal layers of synths, and a voice with a captivating sensuality that will have you leaning in for more. The group formed in 2022 and is led by Irish singer and songwriter Tansy Greenlee, with Nicolas Bauer (bass), Hélios Mikhaïl (drums) and Florian Berret (keys).

In may 2024, OOMA is set to release their debut EP entitled ‘Home’. The Irish singer and songwriter, Tansy Greenlee, delivers well crafted lyrics loaded with imagery and metaphors, exploring desire, derision, and the nostalgia she feels for her country of birth. Inspired by artists like Erykah Badu, Portishead or James Blake, OOMA unveils in this disc their unique blend of musical styles – where neosoul breaks the mould and reaches new dimensions

What is “Summer Chance”?

On July 1st, 2020 we launch a call for projects dedicated to musical creation to support the emerging scene: “SUMMER CHANCE #1”  is born :).
We wish then, taking into account the sanitary constraints related to the epidemic of Covid-19, to allow bands deprived of concerts, to finalize during this period a project of EP in professional and convivial conditions. Our partner, the Red House Studio, has all the qualities to welcome the winners: a magnificent house of 450 m2 in a peaceful and green setting, an ultra professional human accompaniment with a dedicated sound engineer and state-of-the-art equipment.
Among the many applications received during the summer, our selection committee has chosen four winners: Kids Return, LUNAR, Zoe’s Shanghai and Black Rooster.

The project is a real springboard for these musicians, and we’ve decided to repeat it every year:
SUMMER CHANCE #2  in 2021 : Extraa, Saint-Victoire, Serpent et Yakie.
SUMMER CHANCE #3  in 2022: Mandelbro, The CZ et Torren.
SUMMER CHANCE#4 in 2023: Maeva, Mélys, Ooma et Paul Roman
