BATHURST to Melville will bring its Mamanta national tour to Horsham this weekend.
The seven-piece band from the Tiwi Islands will showcase a blend of contemporary and traditional sounds.
B2M band member Jeffrey Simon said the performance take the audience on a journey to the Tiwi Islands to honour their culture and identity.
“Drawing on a strong tapestry of stories including our own songlines that have never left the Tiwi Islands before, Mamanta is unlike anything ever seen,” he said. “We have never created a show that shares our experience this fully.”
The Mamanta tour pays tribute to the past and celebrates the future.
“Like the paintings that reflect the depiction of country, our songlines demonstrate our journeys, our history and our community,” he said.
“For us, the message that B2M shares is the most important facet of our music.
“Steering clear of catchy love-songs, we focus on bigger issues, like drug and alcohol abuse, mental health and understanding identity.”
