Compassion Gorilla has a relentless drive to translate earthy and folkloric sounds into an explosive performance fit for the modern dancefloor, and with the style and nuance to fill a listening room.  Their unique brew has been the life of wild dance parties for nearly a decade, both defying categorization and keeping audiences comfortably at home.

“great storytelling and the international language of music command the stage at today’s festivals.  Compassion Gorilla will find themselves front and centre again and again.  With their eclectic blend of global rhythms and easy charm, they know how to bridge the gap between audience and performer.”
