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 inclusive, captivating music about a multitude of issues faces by both communities and individuals.
The band’s debut album, Home, is unique and infectious, filled with beats, chants and harmonies that showcase the band’s ability to carry a positive image of their people and culture through RnB with a Tiwi twist! 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, Taiwan!
B2M embarked on their first tour to Taiwan to perform at Pulima Festival, an Indigenous festival in Kaohsiung City before visiting a number of key Taiwanese Indigenous communities for workshops and school visits. They finished their tour with a performance at Art Taipei, while also performing alongside other award-winning musicians at Music Salon.
