Cool Summer Beats in Mullum
Stay cool at Cool Summer Beats this Friday, January 8, in Mullumbimby Civic Hall with a night of globally charged beats featuring music troubadour Ganga Giri. Ganga Giri, known for his high energy festival performances, will join the line-up with local performers Mystic Beats, DJ Dakini and Yeshe & World CitiZen.
A rhythmic didgeridoo virtuoso and percussionist, Ganga Giri is a music creator who brings people together in a modern day corroboree. His shows blend an array of tribal percussion with congas, djembe, bougarabou, Nigerian talking drum and mbira with authentic Indigenous moves and Aboriginal dancers.
Ganga Giri has performed his multicultural shows across the globe, and has arrived on the North Coast fresh from the main stages of Woodford Folk Festival (of course) with his full band, including internationally renowned French Guyanan reggae dancehall vocalist Jornick Joelick and Indigenous singer and Gumilaroi nations dancer, Gumaroy.
Along with Ganga Giri, the special line-up includes composer and multi-instrumentalist Yeshe & World CitiZen. DJ Dakini, one of Australia’s female electronic artists, also brings her infectious and unique beats to the dancefloor. Mystic Beats will also help keep the dancing happening with their eastern-influenced electronic dance music which fuses a blend of sitar, guitar, violin, vocals and percussion.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and food will be available at the venue. Tickets cost $20 (+ BF) and can be bought online at www.stickytickets.com/2660 or from All Music and Vision (Byron, Ballina and Lismore), Barebones Artspace (Bangalow), Mullum Books (Mullumbimby) and Murwillumbah Music.
