'It’s really hard to resist dancing to AMARU TRIBE every tune

they create is so rich and textured.” Nkechi Anele, Triple J  Australia

+ PROJECT BIO +
Folktronic act comprising of music producer and singer/songwriter Oscar Jimenez (Colombia- Australia), Muralist and singer/songwriter Katherine Gailer (Colombia- Australia),and percussionist Cristian Saavedra (Chile- Australia).

The project is a playground to explore the intersection between cultures, traditional music from Latin America and new contemporary sounds; Vibrating charangos, urban flow, electronic & afro-latin beats, and powerful vocal harmonies create a portal that gives birth to an unknown genre they called “Cumbia Oceanica”.

Nominated for the 2020 Music Victoria Awards as Best Multicultural Act, they have captivated audiences at major festivals such as Womadelaide, Bluesfest, Queenscliff Festival plus international tours to the USA (SXSW), Colombia, Thailand, and Taiwan. Amaru Tribe are currently preparing the release of their 1st Vinyl LP (2nd full length album) together with a National tour in late 2021 and early 2022.
