About GöG

liquidklein550.jpg
GöG developed a new style of playing Didgeridoo, inspired by: african drumbeats, indian sitar, traditional yidaki masters, church organ, stories, songwriters and several duo- songs with Dori…

He played with Aborigines in the Australian streets aswell as at several European festivals. Good is never good enough for German Didgeridoo artist GöG  – and that’s why his reputation seems to be ever-growing.

GöG loves to play several voices at once.
Even when playing extremely ambitious polyphonic or odd rhythms GöG  always manage to maintain irresistible grooves, keeping their listeners in motion.
Checking GöG’s videos released on youtube and listening to his online sound snippets you’ll be immediately caught by the dense yet delicate soundscapes.
GöG’s music is unique, and it creates a fascinating new musical world: Bush culture meets jazz and funk, archaic rhythms are melting with highly energetic grooves.
  GöG was born in 1968. Before he fell in love with the didgerdoo he was an artisan and a gifted overtone singer. From there it was only a small step towards the Didge. GöG wanted to develop a reproducible technique right from the start; nowadays he’s coaching people with great success in many workshops and Didge clinics.
The most important basics of GöG’s distinctive rhythmic style are founded in his enormous experience with african drumming as well as in various indian music influences. To refine his art even more GöG never missed any chance to learn from masters like Alan Dargin or Djalu Guruwiwi.

About Dori

dorisneff.jpgDori first began her musical career as a child in a number of different choruses in Switzerland. She is highly interested in foreign cultures and in 1999 discovered the Didgeridoo while working as a chef.

Dori enjoys the opportunity to create high quality music with the Didgeridoo and is fascinated by the variety of sounds which the Digeridoo can create. She uses her voice in a unique way to produce special effects using breath patterns to produce complex polyrhythmic African rhythms. This interpretation characterizes her inimitable style of playing the Didgeridoo.

Since 2003 she has performed with didgeridoo professional GöG on stages in Europe and Australia including Didjin’ Devon (GB), Austria Didge Festival (AUT), Swizzeridoo (CH), Didgfest Australia, Fly By Night (AUS). This collaboration culminated with the duo GöG & Dori reaching the final of Germany’s Next Showstars in 2009, performing to a television audience of 2.2 million.

In 2011 and 2012 she performed solo at the Melbourne Didgeridoo and Cultural Festival and is aware of the cultural issues surrounding women playing the didgeridoo.

Dori is one of Europe’s best known female didgeridoo players and keeps in close contact with many of the world’s leading didgeridoo experts.

Returning to Australia in 2012 for the 7th time Dori aspires to continue her musical projects, refine her techniques and learn more about the Didgeridoo and it’s cultural heritage in the Northern Territory.
