Strings, Skins and wood, hold together this tribe of five. Emerging from their trans-oceanic journeys they gather by the laws of creative gravity in the city of Melbourne to resonate with a new sound vision. 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.
Produced by Oscar Jimenez with an active group of local artists, songwriters and well known musicians the tribes’ songs are a personal and collective work connected to topics of social change, ancestral wisdom, love, life and everything that moves us.
