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. Deeply inspired by the sacredness of Australia’s land and how that feeling can be expressed through the didgeridoo, he has become an ambassador for his country, offering his world-wide audience a reflection of contemporary multicultural Australia.
Eclectic World Beat that mixes traditional, innovative & electronic instruments based in deep and dynamic Didgeridoo. Inspired by traditional and contemporary styles Khygy has found his own sound of enchanting rhythm and harmonic vocalization. This is a exiting show with special guest Mago Menla bringing music from around the world. With over 25 years experience he has a broad vision and understanding of different music styles and rhythms they entertained in multiple countries and we are very happy to have them come out to perform at our Didgeridoo Bush Camp 2020.

We use quality Red Box and Yellow Box Eucalyptus logs for our workshops; they are seasoned and ready to be carved.
