Ganga Giri - (gun-gah gear-ree)
A didgeridoo virtuoso and innovator, who fuses this ancient instrument with electronic production and vocals, this music is about connecting to culture.

Ganga Giri started playing the drum kit at eight years old, and has travelled the world learning, studying tabla in India, and using a range of percussion instruments on stage, including djembe and congas as part of his rhythmic beat driven style.

Descendant of the Palawa people of Tasmania, Ganga has taken dance-floors of the world by storm with his unique Australian sound; modern primitive world music fused with deep earth bass music.

With eleven albums to date, and two decades of touring across Australia, Canada, USA, Europe, New Zealand and into Asia, Ganga has performed everywhere from large outdoor festivals to dance clubs, outdoor arenas, hidden caves and sacred temples.

Ganga is also a founder of Didgeridoo Australia, a company that creates Aboriginal incursions and cultural experiences for schools, businesses and for corporate entertainment.

Ganga Giri’s act can have many incarnations; from one-man band to a multi-member dynamic ensemble including Aboriginal dancers and a full multimedia show. Ganga Giri on stage is modern primitive world music fused with deep earth bass music, using driving percussive, didgeridoos, congas, djembe, vocals, and original beats using laptop and loops.

His dynamic sets create dance floors with a sense of community, uniting everyone with the high energy of his beats.
Ganga has rocked festivals worlwide including events such as Glastonbury (UK), Burning Man (USA), Rainbow Serpent and Woodford Folk Festival (Australia), Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), BOOM (Portugal), Shambhala (Canada), Szieget (Hungary) and many more.

Ganga creates positive celebrations of global community, by transcending cultural boundaries, nurturing connections and creating positive change through music.

“Ganga Giri is a wonderful musician. I loved the mix of his ancient and primitive instrument with a wide range of great dance grooves. Ganga is really taking the didgeridoo places it has never been before and developing a unique style of music." – Peter Gabriel

Mihirangi
Mihirangi is all grrrrrrl power – commanding and conscious, humorous and carefree, her powerful message and music is hypnotic and provocative. “It’s Zap Mama, Sheila Chandra, Kate Bush and Billie Holiday being channeled by one woman and one powerful and dynamic voice”. Mihirangi’s astonishing show has captured and mesmerized audiences both nationally and internationally, becoming a touring favorite with her unique sound. She has performed with Public Enemy, Arrested Development, Sly and Robbie, Michael Franti and Lee Scratch Perry. Dubbed the "Queen of Loops", Mihirangi creates her own band sound live in front of her audience. Utilizing a loop pedal, the key to her music is the layering of her own vocal sounds. From the foundation of earth-shaking bass lines to intricately layered harmonies, rhythmic ‘ska’ chops, sensuous jazzy riffs and beat boxing – it’s all done with the power of her voice, an incredible vocal range and an exceptional talent for timing, rhythm and dynamic tonality. A multi-instrumentalist Mihirangi also plays percussion, keyboards, guitar and Hand Sonic.

With grace, fierceness, warmth and humour, Mihirangi’s lyrics poetically celebrate the values, lore, medicines and customs of her lineage and culture, uplifting her audience with her naturalness, infectious laughter and fearless authenticity. Her new show invokes and expresses the strength and spirit of the feminine in the full spectrum of it’s power from raw vulnerability to Indigenous disciplines that powerfully lend themselves to the global equality of feminine expression, empowerment and freedom. A musical journey of the soul that travels back through the ancient lines and melodies of lineages that connect us all.

"She's just brilliant with a capital 'B'! In the 30 years I've toured the world I've never seen anything like her... she belongs on stage.” Ali Campbell, UB40

“Mihirangi has got locked down a whole new way of doing music... it’s going to revolutionise us as artists”. Speech, Arrested Development

On the Executive Committee of the Global Alliance of Mother Nature's Guardians, for the last two years, Mihirangi and the AMNG has been addressing the World Governments, the UN and the International community as Ambassador’s for the Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth, encouraging indigenous values into legislation. Mihirangi has performed for and with fellow artist activists Arrested Development, Lee Scratch Perry, John Butler, Blue King Brown, Michael Franti, Public Enemy, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Dixie Chicks.

“One of the most talked about bands at the event (Bluesfest Australia). Visually stunning and beautiful sounding” Australian Music Mag by Greg Phillips April 2019

Inspiring audiences across the globe, and celebrated for introducing her country to the art of live-looping, Mihirangi returned home back to her Ancestral land, learnt her language, raised a family and created Māmā Mihirangi & the Māreikura. After a highly successful first tour in Canada in 2018, they were invited to showcase at the worlds largest folk, roots and world music conference in February. This performance was amongst over 4000 showcases and was listed by Songlines Magazine (UK) as one of the top 3 live performances to have been seen. Māmā Mihirangi & the Māreikura just performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest for their 30th Anniversary to critical acclaim…

Sashamon
Sasha Makia Spiller-Reiff aka Sashamon- (sa-sha’-mon) began his musical journey singing along with the ukulele strumming Kupuna (respected elders) in elementary school. The red dirt west side of slow paced Moloka'i is a place where musical traditions are still part of the fabric of daily life. As the years passed, Sasha came to have a deep love and respect for his musical roots but never imagined that his personal musical efforts would become known.

An almost magical buzz started when Sasha shared a few songs, made on his home computer, with the tightly knit community of Hawaiian surfers. Then somehow, the demo cd found its way to a radio station in Hilo on the Island of Hawaii. Amazingly enough “Japanese Squeeze” became the station’s most requested song, which was quickly followed by another Sashamon song: “Necta”. The popularity of the music locally encouraged Sashamon to release his cd “One Day Maybe” commercially. Sashamon’s music was top requested on radio stations all over the islands. The music continues in rotation on Hawaii radio shows today and has become a part of the local culture.

In December Hawaii becomes the center of the surfing world every year. Sashamon’s music has also become more well known worldwide because Pipeline Master Jamie O’brien's movies “Freak Show” and "Freak Side" used some of the songs. Many other surf videos feature Sashamon's music as well. (check you tube) Sashamon’s music also is featured on many Fuel t.v.’s segments as well as the series “The “808” . The music video for Sashamon’s hit ”necta” was top requested on Hawaii’s local music video show Overdrive Live.

This continuing popularity has allowed Sasha to take his show on the road. Sasha and his band have taken the show all around the islands. Sashamon’s first shows in California were sold out, WITH FULL HOUSES SINGING NOTE FOR NOTE.

Since then Sashamon has toured from San Diego to Seattle, Florida to Guam. Sashamon and the new “Necta Band” played for FIFTEEN THOUSAND + people at the West Beach Festival in Santa Barbara. Sashamon also headlined the Hurley U.S open of Surfing opening day in Huntington Beach. Sashamon and his band were also featured on live television music showcase “Hot Hawaiian Nights” Sashamon has shared bills with many of todays top reggae bands including; Alpha Blondy, Israel Vibration, Maxi Priest, Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, SOJA, Tribal Seeds, and many others.

In 2014 Sashamon did two headlining tours in Brasil which achieved good publicity and crowd response. Sashamons band currently features Isaac Kamaile jr. a virtuoso Hawaiian guitarist who plays left handed with strings up side down.

One Day Maybe, Sashamon’s debut album incorporates many diverse influences that blend to create an original, peaceful and memorable sound. Sashamon self produced the album playing all the instruments including the ukulele, guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals and drum sequencer. In 2014 Sashamon released two singles recorded in Brasil. July 2014 Sasha and his partner Malia became a first time parents. in his spare moments Sasha is working on music in his project studio on Kauai. He released a new song “What i do” in May of 2018, and is excited to work on new material and performing at cool gigs in the near future.
