Bio

Mambali come from Numbulwar in the Gulf Of Carpentaria. They started in late 2008.
Their songs are from the dreamtime and are about country, culture and the Dhumbul Dance (Devil Dance). Most songs are sang in language and they believe that through music the next generation will follow and understand their culture and remember where they are from.

This funky devil dance makes me want to run, something ignites in you with this. Makings of something iconic. Also love the drums at 50secs and the spoken word break at 2.00. It’s love.

So much tempo here, love the drums smashing through but still allowing each verse to bring something different. You'll hear more on every listen.
