About the Show:

A performance the entire family can enjoy!

Building on their international touring acclaim, B2M (Bathurst to Melville), are embarking on their first major national tour. Come and see this seven-piece band from the Tiwi Islands as they showcase their new album with its unique blend of contemporary and traditional sound.

Mamanta – meaning ‘friend’ in Tiwi – is a pumping RnB performance, Tiwi style! Incorporating footage and imagery of the Tiwi Islands, Mamanta is a vibrant cultural experience told through a mix of dance, chants and song. In an historic show of support from the Tiwi Elders, B2M have gained permission to use traditional Tiwi chants and blend them with modern musical elements.

If you’ve never had an opportunity to travel to the Tiwi Islands before, this show is sure to take you on an illuminating and uplifting journey.

Hailed as “Australia’s answer to the Backstreet Boys” (Huffington Post), this unique boyband have conquered China, East Timor, Taiwan and Ireland. You’ll find yourself dancing as they bring you a rare insight into their island culture delivered with their trademark wit, musicality and charm.

“B2M…wow, the music, the joy, the talent- it was contagious. It would have been a standing ovation that demanded an encore- but everyone was already on their feet dancing! We couldn’t get enough of them!”  – Phaedra Watts, Artistic Director, Nannup Music Festival

B2M – Mamanta national tour is coordinated and presented by Artback NT with the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
