Ripple Effect Band

Ripple Effect Band

Ripple Effect are an all woman’s band coming from Maningrida in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory.

Whilst following in the tradition of saltwater rock from the top end, they are forging new ground and a new sound as the first women from their community to play instruments and make their own band. They sing in the languages of their people, Ndjébbana, Burarra, Na-kara and Kune and they have a story to tell about their land, their languages and their culture.

Part of a rising wave of Aboriginal women musicians right across the NT, Ripple Effect Band are an act not to be missed as they have a contagious energy and excitement born from their love of music and their strong commitment to music as an agent of change.

“We want to inspire young women out there to feel confidence and respect their self and love their self and believe in their self, in their heart for who they are and where they come from.”
