Tjintu Desert Band

Singing in the Aboriginal language of Luritja, Tjintu Desert Band (pronounced Jin-Too) combine funk, rock, reggae and dub grooves to create a distinct desert sound that simultaneously captures its wide-open spaces, its brutal beauty and its formidable darkness. Large and powerful tribal choruses combine with roots and rock influences – featuring Spanish inspired acoustic guitar, rock reggae electric riffs and all supported by a consistent moving dub bass.

Since the release of their debut album, ‘Tjamuku Ngurra’, in March 2014 they have performed all around the country – Barunga Festival, the NIMA Awards,  Alice Desert Festival, Around the Campfire,  Australasian World Music Expo (AWME) in Melbourne, Woodford Folk Festival over New Year’s Eve, Nannup Music Festival 27 Feb – 2 March and WOMADelaide in March 2015.
