Ganga Giri mixes red natural elements with fat tribal beats and dirty funky bass lines to create a unique tribal-technological deep earth dance experience. Explosive and pulsating, at times ambient and flowing, the music is a pumping percussive multi-layered experience of complex grooves and raw, deep natural sound. Ganga himself is a rhythmic didjeridu virtuoso and percussionist– an inspired music creator who’s passion brings people together in celebration of nowness in newness, a modern day corroboree for all!

Representing key elements and inspirations of Australia now, the shows are a modern/primitive multi-cultural celebration, a ‘melting pot’ unifying many musical genres and cultures, bringing audiences world-wide a reflection of today’s multicultural Australia. Ganga Giri’s music has been widely & wildly appreciated by music lovers in many countries across the globe including Australia, Japan, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and New Zealand igniting audiences in clubs, world music festivals and outdoor dance events.

“GANGA GIRI is a wonderful musician. I first heard him at a Womad festival, and loved the mix of his ancient and primitive instrument with a wide range of great dance grooves. Ganga is really taking the didgeridoo to places it has never been before and developing a unique style of music.” Peter Gabriel – Real World Records

“The music took my muddy boots and threw them about for a bit, next thing I knew the dub from the decks had infected my spine and my whole body was bouncing. This carried on throughout the set, until its climax. At which point the sun and blue skies appeared and grinning like a child I went off to get an ice cream!”
Scott Williams – Glastonbury Festival review
