GANGA GIRI (Australia)
Ganga was born in Port Fairy, Australia. His musical journey began as a child when he started playing kit drums at age 8. Inspired by a dream, he followed his calling and began to play didjeridu the very next day. It has been a natural progression for Ganga to create a new contemporary sound by mixing funky rhythms through the didj – especially since the sound he was after wasn’t available on the market. Influenced by many varied genres, including East Indian Tabla and African percussion, he has married indigenous Australian and world music with fat funky dance beats, and has found an appreciative audience across the globe.
Ganga Giri has gained the respect of Aboriginal didgeridu (yidaki) players for his unique approach to didgeridu playing. Deeply inspired by the sacredness of Australia’s land and how that feeling can be expressed through the didjeridu, he has become an ambassador for his country, offering his world-wide audience a reflection of contemporary multicultural Australia.
Ganga Giri inspires a positive celebration of global community and culture, creating a world-beat celebration. 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 has honed his artistic creation in many formats; solo and duo sound systems, through to a multi-member ensemble that includes some of the finest singers, drummers and dancers.
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 Ganga is spreading his word of one world, one time, one people.
ANDREW INTERCHILL (Salt Spring Island)
Andrew started DJing in Montreal alongside being involved producing some of the first raves there in 1993. He released the first compilation under his Interchill label in 1997 and moved out West to Salt Spring Island two years later. Now more than fifty albums and fourteen EP’s later Interchill continues to release quality music that lasts. Over the years Andrew has DJ’’d in beautiful locations here in Canada, including numerous times at Shambhala, as well as around the world at label parties in London, Tokyo and Melbourne, club gigs in Prague, Paris and Toronto and festivals like The Glade in UK, Samothraki in Greece and the legendary Harvest Festival in Ontario. Andrew has also hosted radio shows both in Montreal at CKUT and on Salt Spring at what is now Green FM. The Interchill label philosophy has always been that good music isn’t confined to any given genre; and downtempo or chill-out music allows for a truly broad variety of sounds [which keeps things interesting]
A dance facilitator, temple keeper, community weaver and sound alchemist, Lila loves to provide spaces for inspiration, connection and remembrance. A local Dance Temple DJ and dance facilitator she loves to uplift, inspire and hold space for transformation through ecstatic dance journeys.
