Roots Stage / SAT: 21.20-22.25
ManaTapu produces original music that carries a deep Maltese vibe. The cultural influence seen in their music is shared locally and overseas.
The journey for the musicians of the band started with casual jam sessions; where local bars or beaches served as their stage. They started off from nothing but moved towards the band image we now know as ManaTapu. Deeply rooted in Reggae and Ska, the band’s voice is a fusion with other sounds such as Funk, Blues, Rock, Punk, Hip-Hop, MC and even Polka.
ManaTapu first delivered their massive energy to the crowd at the 2013 Earth Garden Festival where the Roots Stage brought to life the eclectic sounds of this international band.
Their latest album is a ten-track success titled Tuatara was launched in May 2018.
