    Event description

    Kappa Kappura is the sound of water striking the beach and Melbourne needs to get ready to hit the dance floor for some saltwater reggae-rock all the way from the top end of Australia. Ripple Effect Band are from Maningrida in the Northern Territory. These women bring an infectious energy which takes audiences on a journey as they share the soul of Arnhem Land.

    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.

    Since his arrival in Montreal, ILAM has discovered a musical universe where different sounds mingle in a unique cultural basin. ILAM delivers a style of music filled with different musical spices and a great portion of sensitivity. Combining a rhythmic blend of reggae and blues with inclinations of Afro-folk, crossbreeding accents of pop or rock . His voice evokes the depth and power of nomadic people in a mesmerizing and urban atmosphere. His latest album Néné was named Album of the Year in the World Music category at the ADISQ and GAMIQ 2020 Galas.
