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.

Lyrics of Love Is On My Side

Left home when I was only sweet sixteen Chasing blind love and a bunch of broken dreams Don't know how I thought I'd be a queen I could do anything But somehow I end up here I don't know why I still believe that Love is on my side Love is on my side Love is on my side Maybe not tonight I can feel it when it rains I can feel it still runnin' through my veins Ran so fast I couldn't even grow Forgot where I belong Sold my body on a dirty cold floor Yet I believe that I believe that Love is on my side Love is on my side Love is on my side My side Maybe not tonight Love is... Love is... Love is... Love is on my side Maybe not tonight
