It was a pleasure and such an honour to be photographer for IAM band for their first time in Singapore !
Formed in the late 1980s in Marseille and led by the inimitable Akhenaton, IAM put hip hop at the forefront of French music along with MC Solaar and NTM. The band was catapulted to the top of the charts with a string of ’90s hits, starting with the classic “Je Danse le Mia“. They haven’t missed a beat since, expanding their repertoire with group and solo projects, tackling the burning issues of racism, inequality, and the tough realities of urban life.
This would not be possible without the agency that brought them in Singapore, Figure8 !
