SUNDAY 27 MAY
Ft. Përolas, Tahnioca Cumbiera
Strings, Skins and wood holds together this tribe of six. In Quechua, “Amaru” is the serpent which connects the spiritual and the subterranean world.
The tribes deep connection with their roots and mythology is nurtured through in their songlines. Amazonic drums, vibrating charangos and powerful vocal harmonies align to the Australian land creating a musical portal that connects the entire south hemisphere and gives birth to an unknown genre which they call Oceanic Cumbia.
Nominated for Best Roots and World Music Album at The Age Music Awards in 2017 for their debut selftitled Album “Amaru Tribe” is a new project produced by Chibcha aka Oscar Jimenez with an active group of local Melbourne artists, songwriters and well known musicians from Colombia, Argentina, Chile Venezuela.
The tribes songs are a personal and collective work connected to topics of social change, ancestral wisdom, love, life and everything that moves us.
DOORS – 8:30pm
