This seasoned road warrior has blown up countless festival stages of tens of thousands of ecstatic dancers, touring across Australia, Canada, the USA, Europe, New Zealand and into Asia. Performing everywhere from large outdoor Electronic, Folk, Roots and World Music Festivals to dance clubs, outdoor arenas, hidden caves and sacred temples.

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. A positive celebration.
“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 didjeridu to places it has never been before and developing a unique style of music.”
– Peter Gabriel
Ganga Giri, a psychedelic tribe of musicians that create an amazing multi-layered blend of indigenous/electro/dance/rock, and upon my first vision of Giri dancing around the stage, waving his arms around and playing didgeridoo at the same time he’d won me over. I also loved the resonating vocals of Jornick, the rasta vocalist, but what I love most about Ganga Giri is the way that all the elements of their musical creation come together to create a sonical soundscape that is unlike anything else I’ve ever heard, truly original musicians. – Faster Louder Review, Australia, January 2010
