Salt Lake Band (Enungkwerrimanja)

Salt Lake Band (Enungkwerrimanja) are a 10 piece band hailing from Umbakumba, Groote Eylandt.

Salt Lake Band we made 18 years ago, after gathering around telling stories to their young ones and turning those stories into music. Music they play today to keep their traditions and culture alive. The band are known for singing in English and in their Anindilyakwa language, a band connected by family and dreaming’s tied to the Warnindilyakwa way of song lines, totems and beginning of time.  

Salt Lake hope to pass on the Anindilywakwa culture to the next generation and to all indigenous Australians.
