Description

Ripple Effect Band are from the remote community of Maningrida in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. Whilst following in the tradition of saltwater rock from the top end, they are forging new ground and a new sound as the first women from their community to play instruments and make their own band. Originally called the Front Street Girls when they were at high school together, they reformed with a new name and an aim to show Australia how women can rock the stage.

In 2017, they recorded their debut Wárrwarra, four songs in four Aboriginal languages, Ndjébbana, Burarra, Na-kara and Kune. Over 2018 they toured to Sydney, Perth, Darwin, Alice Springs and Adelaide as well as Garma and Barunga Festivals. This year they are excited to be performing for the first time in Melbourne as part of their From North to South tour that also includes the Mona Foma Festival in Launceston.

Come down to Thornbury Bowls as this is a rare opportunity to see Ripple Effect Band who are an act not to be missed. They have a contagious energy and excitement born from their love of music and they have such stories to share about their land, their languages and their culture.

They will be joined by local bands Terry and Punko with other special guests to be announced.
