B2M's Mamanta National Tour

Building on their international touring acclaim, in China, East Timor, Taiwan and, most recently, Ireland, B2M are now embarking on their first national tour. Their show Mamanta – meaning ‘friend’ in Tiwi – presents a unique performance, Tiwi style!  Accompanied by new music releases, Mamanta will present a map of musical influences and explorations from around the world, while drawing on the rich local history of Tiwi Islands. Incorporating footage and imagery of contemporary Tiwi life, including church practice, football and influences from their art centres, Mamanta is a vibrant cultural experience told through a mix of dance, chants, song and film.


With such a strong tapestry of stories to draw from, including songlines that have never left the Tiwi Islands before, Mamanta will be unlike anything ever seen. If you’ve never had an opportunity to travel to the Tiwi Islands before, this show is sure to take you on an illuminating cultural journey. See below for where they are playing and where.
