Ganga Giri - Sugar Night Club June 27, 2014 TD Victoria International Jazzfest.
Australia’s Ganga Giri, a virtuoso on didgeridoo and percussion whose band lays down fat tribal dance beats and dirty-funky bass lines as part of what’s been called a “tribal-technological deep-earth dance experience.” Explosive and pulsating, ambient and flowing at times, this unique group offers pumping percussion and a multilayered aural atmosphere of complex grooves and a raw natural sound that is compelling and profound. The percussion is produced on such varied instruments as congas, djembe, and Nigerian talking drums and combines into an unbeatably funky indigenous roots-groove. They have a half-dozen CDs out including their latest, 2011’s Good Voodoo. Don’t dare miss their live show and its mix of multi-racial modernism and primal primitivism which has enraptured audiences from Japan to Germany. Ganga Giri, George Nicolas, Daryl Chonka, Yazmin Amal
