Mapatazi is an all girl/women enmasse onslaught of electric guitars and basses.
Community-spirited, yet professional in outcome, Mapatazi celebrates female power in the male-dominated music arena.
We play only our original music, with hints of ambient washes, heavy metal riffs and anything in-between.
We dress in gold and silver - precious and valuable - to highlight our worthiness in the world.
Our world premiere performance was in March 2021 at the Launceston Worker's Club (once a men's-only bar) as part of Ten Days on the Island festival.

“MAPATAZI is a glittering, blistering onslaught of rock: an electric guitar orchestra of 21 local women of all skill levels taking over the back room of the Launceston Men’s Workers Club in a joyously shambolic affair with an infectious sense of fun.” Asher Warren, The Conversation 2021
