Hailing from the tropical city of Cairns, MANUKA merge lush electronic sounds with dub-funk reggae. Expect to be moved by fat bass, huge drums, sleek guitar, rich keys and powerful vocals that carry lyrics about deep consciousness, culture and the environment.

From 2018 to the present, MANUKA have performed at festivals such as Wallaby Creek, Rootbound, Kuranda Roots, River Sessions, Cairns Festival and Tablelands Folk Festival, as well as at intimate shows in and around their home base city of Cairns.

The band have proven themselves to be a dynamic outfit that never fails to get people on the dance floor, taking their audience on a journey that rides flowing, groove-based rhythms, catchy hooks and melodic interludes, whilst getting deep down into those Irie reggae pockets. The band is taking their music to a new level this year, aiming over the horizon to the dance floors beyond.
