From inception in 2004 and embarking on a steady journey of live performances soon after, Tribali captivated audiences with their mystical concoction of ethnic, contemporary and traditional music, immediately catapulting them as one of the premier acts in Malta. A trio of studio albums, a critically acclaimed compilation, exhilarating live performances in prestigious and leading international and local festivals such as the Byron Bay Bluesfest, Glastonbury, Ancient Trance World Music, Earth Garden and the Farsons Great Beer Festival, various awards, encouraging global press reviews and blog platforms, have all been instrumental for the band to continue to fuel their passion for the distinctive blend of music. The electrifying atmosphere and dynamic interaction during their live performances leaves the audience feeling like they participated in making the live experience an unforgettable one full of positive energy.
The collection of ethnic instruments and numinous sounds and rhythms will always remain at the epicentre. Today the sitar, didgeridoo and percussion blend effortlessly with distorted electric guitars, chunky bass lines, violins, trumpets, dance oriented drums and hypnotic vocals resulting in a tight knit and high calibre act. These collective musical bearings culminate into a vibrant exhibition of world music, pop, psychedelic, dance, reggae, ska, rock and blues creating an inimitable sonic vibe. This allows for an ability to amalgamate with any musical genre, which has led to performing alongside diverse world class acts such as Moby, the Prodigy, Faithless, Ziggy Marley, the Wailers, G3, John Butler, Wolf Mother, Crowded House and the Specials to name a few. Bluesfest festival director and music guru Peter Noble lists Tribali within his top 10 to hear and quoting Tribali as ‘one of the best bands to EVER play Bluesfest’.
