Amaru Tribe

2:00 pm

This tribe of six are bound through strings, skins and wood.

Emerging from their trans-oceanic journey they unite in the city of Melbourne to create music that embodies ancestral and urban
sounds. In the Quechuan language, Amaru is the serpent that connects the spiritual and the subterranean world. The Tribe´s deep connection with their roots and mythology is nurtured through their songlines. Amazonic drums, vibrating charangos and powerful vocal harmonies give birth to a new sound, Oceanic Cumbia.

The tribes songs are a personal and collective work connected to topics of social change, ancestral wisdom, love, life and everything that moves us.

After being nominated for Best Roots and World Music Album at The Age Music Awards in 2017 for their debut selftitled Album “Amaru Tribe”, 2019 saw the band release a double single, and embark on an International tour, kicking off with appearances at Womad and Bluesfest.

They have made their presence felt on the nationwide festival circuit including: Strawberry Fields (NSW), The Lost Lands (VIC), Melbourne Festival, Blenheim Music Festival (SA) and many more.
