Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Rock :: Tjintu Desert Band - Tjamuku Ngurra

Tjintu Desert Band - Tjamuku Ngurra

Tjintu Desert Band - Tjamuku Ngurra
Listening to the debut album by Tjintu Desert Band [pronounced Jin-Too] it’s evident these 5 young Aboriginal men from remote Central Australian towns of Ikuntji and Kintore have a connection to their land, its spirits and a transcendent magic that captures the atmosphere and sound of the desert.

Tjamuku Ngurra [pronounced Jam-akoo Noora] features 10 tracks with resounding guitar riffs perfect for radio. Funk, rock, reggae and dub grooves weave together to create a distinct sound that captures the desert’s wide-open spaces, beauty and darkness. Spanish-inspired acoustic guitar and rock/reggae electric riffs are supported by a moving dub bass throughout this roots music. Their aural paintings (in both Luritja and English) are stories sung of country & the people who live there. Tjamuku Ngurra is a new sound that leaves you with a sense of connection to the heart of Australia and the vibrant music scene known there as ‘Desert Reggae’.

Produced by Jeremy Conlon and mixed by Tim Cole Tjamuku Ngurra is released by CAAMA Music. This is a definitive album release in the evolution of this independent Indigenous record label based in Alice Springs.

The first track to radio is the ripper title track - Tjamuku Ngurra.
