Didj Jah dance
Master of the funky didjeridu (how many ways can you spell didgeridoo?), Ganga Giri, returns from a year on the northern hemisphere festival circuit to perform (with his group) at Coorabell Hall on Saturday, February 11.
Therell be a full complement of indigenous musicians and dancers, musicians from other parts of the world, and top DJs creating a deep-earth experience through pumping didj, tribal beats, funky dub bass lines and world-music percussion.
Ganga is a didj virtuoso with a powerful rhythmic style. Explosive and pulsating at times, ambient and flowing at others, his music is a mix of complex grooves and raw, natural sounds.
Also performing with Ganga will be V-Ka and Yeshe Reiners.
Tickets are $18/15 at the door. Food and drinks will be available. The gig starts at 8pm.
