Ganga Giri has been one of our favourite past Big Time Out performers. He is back to warm us up on the road to this year’s festival.
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. Carving a niche in the DJ dominated world of dance music, Ganga Giri is an energetic, innovative and incredibly live act.
Ganga Giri’s full show blends an array of tribal percussion that includes Ganga’s uniquely percussive style didj playing, congas, djembe, bougarabou, Nigerian talking drum, mbira and more– add to this a drizzling of authentic indigenous moves with aboriginal dancers and hold on tight as Ganga Giri sends audiences through the roof.
