B2M – Taiwan 2016

About

B2M (Bathurst to Melville) are a seven-piece RnB Indigenous band hailing from the Northern Territory’s Tiwi Islands, 80 kilometres north of Darwin where the Arafura Sea meets the Timor Sea. Formed in late December 2004, B2M are strong Tiwi men who write, sing and perform music that transcends cultural, social and geographical boundaries.  Holding role model status in their community and becoming ambassadors in a broader Australian and international landscape, B2M have performed extensively throughout WA and the NT, China, East Timor and, most recently, Ireland.

Following their February showcase at the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) in Brisbane, B2M, have been invited to perform across a number of venues in Taiwan. Supported by the Australian Office – Taiwan, the tour begins with a show in Taipei and then heads south to the Pulima Festival before visiting a number of key Taiwanese Indigenous communities. This is an extraordinary opportunity for shared connections with artists, audiences and cultural exchanges with B2M and the Indigenous Taiwanese people.

The B2M tour of Taiwan is supported by the Australian Office Taipei, the Australia China Council and the Northern Territory Government
