Pumping percussive didjeridu cooks hot, creating a mixtured – textured blend of indigenous technorganica. For this project Ganga enlisted the help of electronic wizard & world music producer Don Peyote to write, record and mix technological beats with the tribal sounds of the Australian Bush. At the time of recording, Don Peyote’s studio was situated on a mountain top at the foothill of Wilson’s Creek Rainforest in Northern New South Wales. This magical and exotic location provided the inspiration for most of the tunes. The plethora of natural sounds heard on the album (birds, frogs and insects) were recorded by setting up a microphone outside the studio’s front door. Didjeridu, percussion and vocals by Ganga Giri

Reviews for Raising It Up by Ganga Giri
And The Beats Keep Jammin!
Holy S*$%, these guys are badddd asssss! How come I’ve not heard of them being a Grammy nominee?!? I had downloaded, “Tribe Vibe” yesterday, instantly fell in LOVE with it; was compelled to hear more and today I downloaded this one, “Rising It Up.” These guys are f’n amazing. I would love to meet them one day. I especially love the track, “Don’t Follow the Guru” Enuf said!

I sampled these tracks on my Zune and had to have this-I bought their first CD which was awesome. This is great to listen to and inspire you to get moving- I plan to use it for boot camp, Spinning, power yoga, etc..It makes you feel stronger and more alive.
