Ripple Effect Band + Special Guest (TBA)

Featuring a strong frontline of female voices in stunning harmonies, and a rotating backline of talented multi-instrumentalists, Ripple Effect Band sing in six languages from the Western Arnhem Land community of Maningrida. Like the wind that blows across the land bringing the spirits of the ancestors, these languages connect their music to the past and into the future.

Having warmed up at some Northern Territory dry season festivals such as Garma, Barunga and Freedom Day, the band will be sharing with east coast audiences, new songs, and new sounds from their upcoming album. Ripple Effect Band are a unique presence in the Top End of Australia who have an infectious energy that is not to be missed Kappa Kappura is the sound and the feeling of water striking the beach in the Ndjébbana language of Maningrida.

The band chose this name to describe their southern tour as it is time for their music to hit the music scene nationally as women who are standing up and expressing their culture, their languages, and their strength through music.
