Didgeridoo driven world beat/electronica/reggae performer Ganga Giri hits the stage at Upstairs Cabaret in Victoria

Ganga Giri mixes natural elements with fat tribal beats and dirty funky bass lines to create a unique tribal-technological deep earth dance experience.

Giri himself is a rhythmic didjeridu virtuoso and percussionist – an inspired music creator whose passion brings people together in celebration.

Representing key elements and inspirations of Australia, the shows are a multicultural celebration, a melting pot unifying many musical genres and cultures, bringing audiences world wide a reflection of today’s multicultural Australia.

Giri’s music is widely appreciated by music lovers in many countries across the globe including Australia, Japan, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and New Zealand igniting audiences in clubs, world music festivals and outdoor dance events.

Carving a niche in the DJ dominated world of dance music, Giri is an energetic and innovative live act.

Giri’s full show blends an array of tribal percussion that includes his uniquely percussive style didj playing, congas, djembe, bougarabou, Nigerian talking drum, mbira and more – add to this a drizzling of authentic indigenous moves with aboriginal dancers and hold on tight as Giri sends audiences through the roof.
