B2M – MAMANTA

Building on their international touring acclaim, B2M (Bathurst to Melville), are embarking on their first major national tour.

Come and see this seven-piece band from the Tiwi Islands as they showcase their new album with its unique blend of contemporary and traditional sound.

Mamanta – meaning ‘friend’ in Tiwi – is a pumping RnB performance, Tiwi style! Incorporating footage and imagery of the Tiwi Islands, Mamanta is a vibrant cultural experience told through a mix of dance, chants and song. In an historic show of support from the Tiwi Elders, B2M have gained permission to use traditional Tiwi chants and blend them with modern musical elements. If you’ve never had an opportunity to travel to the Tiwi Islands before, this show is sure to take you on an illuminating and uplifting journey.

Hailed as “Australia’s answer to the Backstreet Boys” (Huffington Post), this unique boyband have conquered China, East Timor, Taiwan and Ireland. You’ll find yourself dancing as they bring you a rare insight into their island culture delivered with their trademark wit, musicality and charm.

Date & Time
Sunday 2 September at 3pm

B2M Musicians
Shelton Murray, Greg Orsto, Fabian Kantilla, Daniel Cunningham, Damien

B2M are strong Tiwi cultural leaders who write, sing and perform music that transcends cultural, social and geographic boundaries.

The band’s debut album, Home, is unique and infectious, filled with beats, chants and harmonies that showcase their ability to carry a positive image of their people and culture through RnB Tiwi style! Holding role model status in their community and becoming ambassadors in a broader Australian and international landscape, B2M have performed extensively throughout WA and the NT, China, East Timor and most recently, Ireland. B2M were formed in late December 2004.
