Amaru Tribe

Amaru Tribe
Amaru Tribe - El Girasol

Strings, skin and waves hold together this global tribe produced by a group of Melbourne based artists from Australia, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Venezuela. Vibrating charangos, electronic sounds with afro-latin beats and powerful vocal harmonies align with the Australian land, creating a portal which connects the southern hemisphere and gives birth to an unknown genre called “Cumbia Oceanica”.
Nominated for Best Global/Reggae Act (The Age Music Awards), their debut self-titled album got national recognition and featured international artists such as: Tonolec (Argentina), QVLN (USA), Nhattyman (Ethiopia/Australia) and OKA (Australia). Their popularity continues to rise with invitations and attendances at world premier festivals including: Womadelaide 2019, Strawberry Fields, The Lost Lands, and FedSquare New Year’s Eve street party (Melb).
In Quechua, , “Amaru” is the serpent which connects the spiritual and the subterranean world. The tribes deep connection with their roots is nurtured in their song lines; with a bilingual nature which allows the listener to discover connections between Australia's diverse cultural backgrounds.
