Tjintu Desert Band

About

Tjintu Desert Band is from Haasts Bluff/Ikunjti, 250km west of Alice Springs, and their sound encompasses funk, rock and desert reggae, with lyrics sung in both the Luritja language and English.

Since their first performance together at The Battle of the Bands in 2002, they’ve gone by the name Sunshine Reggae Band, until deciding to change their name to Tjintu Desert Band. The new name pays tribute to their former one by including the word “tjintu”, the word for sunshine in the Luritja language of their homeland, while allowing them greater freedom to expand their music.
