Balming Tiger’s Musical Identity

Balming Tiger has garnered attention for its multi-genre musical pieces, which include not only “SEXY NUKIM” but also “Kolo Kolo.” What sets them apart is their refusal to be confined to a single musical genre.

This connection paved the way for a unique musical partnership that resulted in “SEXY NUKIM.”
