ARIA-nominated, nationally-acclaimed Cairns band that has redefined and reinvigorated Australian folk music since its inception in 2008 with a funky, multi-hued interpretation of colonial standards.
Celtic tunes, jazz, reggae, rock and world music elements sit side by side in its serpentine music, taking audiences on an exhilarating journey. Kamerunga melds mandolin, fiddle and guitar wizardry with sizzling saxophone, keyboards and a dynamic rhythm section that includes former Steeleye Span drummer, Nigel Pegrum.
The sextet has become a firm favourite on the national festival circuit, putting in lauded performances at Woodford, Port Fairy, The Dreaming, Byron Bay Bluesfest, The National, Bellingen Global Carnival, Wintermoon, the Australasian World Music Expo and other major events in the past couple of years.
