Tanita Tikaram (Münster12 August 1969) is a British singer. She was born in Germany when her father was stationed there as an officer in the British army. Tikaram has to her twelfth on the Kent School (Waldniel) sat, located in an old monastery. When she was 12 years old, his family moved to Basingstoke in England. Her brother is actor Ramon Tikaram .

Tikaram became famous with the numbers Good Tradition and Twist in My Sobriety, which in many countries have become classics. The songs were from her debut album, Ancient Heart, that came out in 1988. They then spent a few more singles, but among the general public is her later work less well known. But remained much viewership due in part to her crossover music between pop and folk.

In a British popular music magazine at the time, she was described as Lloyd Cole with a wedge.

In 1995 she decided after the release of her fifth album and tour to do it easy. They did some traveling and acted a bit here and there. That eventually led to the sixth album The Cappuccino Songs, which was released in 1998. She performed that year six times, including twice for an Amnesty International Benefit. Then they again pulled back from the foreground. In 2005, Tikaram back in the attention by the release of a new album, called Sentimental .
