ABOUT AMARU TRIBE

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.

Nominated for Best Roots and World Music Album at The Age Music Awards in 2017 for their debut selftitled Album “Amaru Tribe” the bands popularity continues to rise as it makes its presence in Festivals around the country including Strawberry Fields (NSW), The Lost Lands (VIC), Melbourne Festival, Blenheim Music Festival (SA) and more. A new exciting project produced by well-known singer and performer Oscar Jimenez (aka Watussi’s front-man) together with an talented and diverse group of Melbourne based artists, songwriters and well known musicians from Australia, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Venezuela.

ESPAÑOL

Una nueva tribu emerge de la vibrante y artistica ciudad de Melbourne. Con elementos de folclor Andino, energeticos ritmos afro latinos y sonidos electricos, este grupo canta canciones originales que conectan con sus raices y las historias de su vida. 

 

Un proyecto producido por Oscar Jimenez junto a un grupo de artistas, compositores y musicos conocidos en la escena local con una misma vision: Ser una fuerza creativa y creadora para su comunidad en Australia y para el resto del mundo.

 

Las canciones de la tribu son un trabajo tanto individual como collectivo donde se encuentran temas de cambio social, sabiduria ancestral, historias amor, vida y todo lo que nos conecta.
