Tee Slaves is a play on her real name, Tahyira Savanna. The idea behind the branding of her music directly coincides with her roots. Tahyira has done extensive research on her ancestry, dating back to the 1800s when slavery was first recorded in Trinidad and Tobago. She is a first generation born American and her music covers themes found in the neighborhoods she has lived.
She went to school in Brownsville, Brooklyn. She went to college in Brookville, New York. The duality of her experiences has led to become a writer both in journalism and film mediums. She has traveled the world, getting inspired from the music she heard in London disco clubs, to African trap music she learned in Paris, to the reggae dub music of Tobago.
Tee Slaves is on radio rotation with the track “Pull Up” Ft. Jam Young.
