and dived into electronic music and music for film and Television.
Ganga entered the world of downtempo electronic music with the album "I dream about trees" (Music for Dreams) in 2004.
Since then Ganga has released 7 albums, many EPs and 12”, and his numerous chilled downtempo tracks are now featured on more than 200 different chill out compilation albums, amongst them the infamous Café Del Mar and Buddha Bar.
People in Brazil will probably know Gangas track “Skyscraper”, since it was used extensively in the Brasillian telenovella, “A Vida da Gente” - seen by 50 mio. people every day for 4 months. And many more of Gangas tracks are used in TV-series and soundtracks all over the world.
F. ex. the danish blockbuster movie "Klovn Forever" and the MTV show "TheHills", which both features the classic Ganga track "Chair" for some chill moments.
As a DJ, Ganga is especially known for his genre-defying downtempo DJ sets which has brought him as far as Tokyo Skytree and Shag Nightclub in Japan, “Buddha Bar” and Siddharta Lounge (resident DJ) in Dubai, and many hotspots in Ibiza like Café Del Mar, Sands, Hotel Es Vive, Atzaro, Villa Mercedes, as well as gigs in Spain. In Denmark Ganga played 4 times at Scandinavias biggest festival - Roskilde Festival – with his band “Ganga Cinematic Orchestra” and “Panser”. Part of the recorded livemusic from the live-performance at Roskilde Festival of the score to "Fritz Langs silent movie "Metropolis", is right now being used in a all new soundtrack that features tracks by Massive Attack, Brian Eno, New Order, Faithless, Cinema Orchestra, Ganga and parts from the original soundtrack by Christian Rønn.
The sound of Gangas artist productions is best characterized as chilled downtempo/midtempo electronic listening music with lots of balearic guitars, electronic dubs, rolling bassgrooves, beautiful vocals and meticulous electronic production with just a hint of dubby electronic trancevibes. And always with brilliant musical and vocal performances from all corners of the world, giving the ethnic touch.
The list of Gangas collaborators are very long and includes Ingrid Chavez (Prince), Alexia Vasilliou (Stevie Wonder), David McAlmont (McAlmont & Butler), Vanessa Daou, Dawn Joseph (The Brand New Heavies), Helle Chirholm, Steen Kyed, Scheherazade Stone and many others.
Despite his classical background, Gangas first chill out music was heavily influenced by the electronic scene of the early 90s. He also developed a passion for ethnic music, which lead him to study instruments such as the sitar and the tingklik – in India and Bali.
When Ganga performs as a DJ, it is this melting pot of sounds and inspiration he brings to the show. With his over two decades of experience in the international musical circuit, Gangas bright, luscious, but rhythmically adventurous sound, continues to create that sought after atmosphere whose DNA is truly global.
