The Black Mamba
Founded in 2010, The Black Mamba traverses a universe of different styles, including blues, soul and funk.
Their self-titled first album was a huge success, selling out in stores and topping the Portuguese iTunes chart.
In little more than a year after their debut album, they’d played gigs across the globe, from Philadelphia to Rio de Janeiro.
The group feel most at home playing live gigs and concerts, and have enjoyed playing on some of the most iconic festival stages there are.
At the Festival Marés Vivas in Porto, The Black Mamba shared the main stage with Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Jamie Cullum and The Script.
Lead singer Tatanka wrote Love Is On My Side after an inspirational trip to Amsterdam, and is excited to see the song travel back home to the Netherlands.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the contest’s organisers (NPO, NOS and AVROTROS) announced last january a final decision regarding the scenario that will ensure the health and safety of all people that will be involved in the Eurovision Song Contest next May in Rotterdam. From all the initial four scenarios they considered at the beginning, the organisers have decided to implement ‘Scenario B’.
The health safety and protocols that will be followed match with the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment guidelines for similar large-scale events such as sports competitions.
