Summary
Originally called Sunshine Reggae Band, we formed in 2002 to compete at the Battle of the Bands Papunya. In 2013 we changed our name to include the word 'tjintu' (pronounced jin-too), which means 'sunshine' in the Luritja language of our homeland. We are the remote Aboriginal community of Ikuntji (Haasts Bluff) in Central australia. Althogh only 227 kms west of Alice Springs, it takes almost four hours to get there along unsealed red sand roads. For our community of around 200 people there is one general store, one school, no mobile phone reception and little access to the internet. But Ikuntji is so much more than the town itself - it's the rocky hills, the red earth, the country of our Dreaming, our grandfather's country. The land is our connection to everything; our language, our dances, our stories, our bodies and our music. It holds all those stories from our past and guides us to the future. This is tjamuku, or 'grandfather's country'. This land with all its teachings and history,has been passed down through the generations. It is now our responsibility to care for the land, to remember the stories of our grandfathers and to re-tell those stories to our children and our children's children
