Tammah, just like popular YouTube, is a free online video platform for anyone to find, watch and share original, independent African content. We are going to have a look at this new innovative website where you can do video streamming: tammahmuri.com.
Created by a group of individuals who believe that major platforms are too big and local platforms are uninspired. They want to help fix African narrative problem. tammah has a community focus and is a place for independent African content to live and thrive.
Origin of the word Tammah
tammah is a respelling of the word tama [TAH-mah], the Senegalese name for the West African talking drum. A talking drum is any of various types of drums that, by imitating the rhythm and the rise (and fall) of words in languages, communicate ideas, stories, and culture. The tama embodies the vision for the tammah community.
