Tjupi (honey ant) come from the Papunya, 250km NW of Alice Springs.
Tjupi Band play energetic and emotive desert reggae. Singing in Luritja (as well as in English), they are the foremost musical inspiration for people across Central Australia. From growing up learning from the members of Warumpi Band, they form part of the new wave of uniquely Indigenous Australian reggae; alongside other musical innovators such as Saltwater Band and Letterstick Band. In September 2009 they were chosen as one of three acts to perform in Darwin at the Telstra NT Indigenous Music Awards, sharing the stage with Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and Jessica Mauboy.
