In 2012, the two street musicians Lasha Rukhadze and Dauda Conteh founded the project Teeth’n’Tongue Jam. Soon after, Nikos Xatzakis, Reinhardt Kola and William Pendleton joined in to take the project from the streets to the clubs and the underground of Athens, Greece and various Greek islands – with the involvement of other artists in changing lineups.

In 2015, Lasha Rukhadze traveled to Switzerland where he met drummer Frederik Rechsteiner while playing a street music show. There was an immediate spark between the two. Toghether they travelled to Burkina Faso where they worked on the 12 songs that would be later recorded on the island of Crete in Greece. They were supported by members of the Greek lineup, as well as some new Swiss members and collaborators. In the following years, TNT Jam repeatedly played concerts in Switzerland.

2018 was an important year: the first EP «Share a Vibe», mixed by the grandmaster Jim Fox (Groundation) was released on Fon-Ton records. With the support of Rad Fyah, the band released several videoclips, including «Hashpital», «Luxury Problem» and «Lifestyle» – the latter a co-production with other artists from Burkina Faso, Greece and Switzerland. A tour on Crete completed this year, reuniting the band with old members.

Despite the pandemic the band members got back together every year. Besides other releases and shows in Switzerland, the band had a huge success at Gadersound Festival in South Tyrol (IT) and Seasplash Festival in Sibenik (HR) in Summer 2022.
