Ganga Giri from Melbourne will play a special one off gig in Noosa with Wild Marmalade who are back at the J by popular demand. This awesome night will kick off at 8pm on Friday the 11th January 2008.
Ganga Giri mix 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 experience of multi-layered grooves and a raw, deep natural sound. Ganga himself is a rhythmic didjeridu virtuoso and percussionist-- an inspired music creator who's passion brings people together in celebration.
Ganga Giri's live shows have been widely & wildly appreciated by music lovers in countries across the globe including Australia, UK with the famous Glastonbury Festival, Japan, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, New Zealand and the United States, igniting club audiences, world music festivals and outdoor dance events. Carving a niche in the DJ dominated world of dance music, Ganga Giri is an energetic, innovative and incredibly alive act. They blend an array of tribal percussion including Ganga's uniquely percussive style didj playing, turntables, electronic beats, congas, Nigerian talking drum, mbira and more. Add to this, authentic indigenous moves with aboriginal dancers and hold on tight as Ganga Giri sends audiences through the roof.
"The music took my muddy boots and threw them about for a bit, next thing I knew the dub from the decks had infected my spine and my whole buddy was bouncing throughout their set, until its climax. At which point the sun and blue skies appeared and grinning like a child I went off to get an ice cream!" Scott Williams - Glastonbury Festival review
Wild Marmalade from Byron Bay had everybody dancing at the J on their last performance and can't wait to rock the crowd again with their high energy, organic dance music.  They melt the ancient sounds of the Australian Didjeridu with contemporary techno style drumming to create fresh vibrant dance music characterized by blitzing tempos and tasty grooves. They only use real instruments with astonishing skill, without any effects or samples.
Inspired by both indigenous sounds and the beats of the now, Wild Marmalade's high energy shows uplift audiences with their display of powerful, joyous and infectiously danceable music.
Featuring two of Australia's hottest drummers and one of the best didjeridu players in the world, Wild Marmalade are a formidable force in the realm of dance music.
They have worked with Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and Montreal, played the biggest club in the world, Privilege for Manumission, toured the States and Europe five times and have recently been rocking crowds in Japan and Woodford.
So come down to the J for a night of highly energetic and musically diverse performances for these two must see acts at the price of one.
To make a special night even more special VJ James Muller / Earth Based productions will create his live projections on the big screen and enlighten souls with his fantastic visuals.
Ganga Giri and Wild Marmalade bring their pulsating sounds with fat bass lines and funky grooves to The J in Noosa Junction on Friday 11th January 2008 at 7pm for an 8pm start.
