Sand Tracks 2018 – Saltwater Band and Black Rock Band
Ten years after it all began, Galiwin’ku’s legendary Saltwater Band is bringing their sound back to the country’s centre to once again headline the Sand Tracks tour.
One of the Northern Territory’s most loved bands, Saltwater Band have sold over 30,000 albums, been awarded the prestigious Deadly’s “Album of the Year”, been nominated for an ARIA and toured extensively across Australia.
Supporting them will be the up and coming Black Rock Band from West Arnhem.
Having just dropped their debut album “Struggle”, Black Rock Band sing in Kunwinjku and English about their celebration of culture, connection to country, the fight for social justice and the future they want to create for the next generation.
Sand Tracks begins on 16 September at Bush Bands Bash in Alice Springs, through its partnership with MusicNT and will then travel over three weeks to five remote Aboriginal communities across three states; Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory, with the final performance in Kiwirrkurra – one of Australia’s most remote communities, more than 2000km drive from Perth.
