Darwin looping duo, VanderAa to play Secret Garden Show
The frequency of VanderAa is the frequency of brothers, sunshine and connection. Their latest record ‘Light Of Love’ written and recorded in Melbourne, evokes a sense of playfulness, dance and love.
“the world can always do with more love.” - Levi VanderAa
Enter your mind, body and soul, feel what moves you, feel the rhythm lift you up. Your senses are vibrating and your hair stands on end, your heart beats faster to the driving beat of the drums as the music washes over you. VanderAa begin with the music and end with the music, what lies in between is a story they love to share.
VanderAa’s sound blends a mix of drum, djembe, beatboxing, didgeridoo, guitar and vocals. You can feel the intention they breath into their words, the energy they move through their instruments and the connection they create with their audience.
Hot off a world tour, a stand out highlight in their careers, this Vanlife journey of brothers Aaron and Levi from Darwin, Australia is a story worth following. From humble beginnings busking the streets of the Northern Territory to performing festivals such as; Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Berlin Travel Festival, Burning Man, headlining festivals in Italy, and filming the documentary ‘The Meaning of Vanlife’.
An achievement that stands out for VanderAa is their Burning Man experience in 2017. Aaron and Levi assisted with the facilitation of a global drumming ceremony with the first nation people. The camp ‘Red Lightning’ hosted 30 indigenous elders as well as bringing people together with over 500 drum circles from Peru to Nepal to Iceland to Mexico and over 1 million listeners online. This was the biggest drum prayer in history.
VanderAa will be appearing at a super special Secret Garden Show in Tinbeerwah on Friday, November 2nd. Tickets are $25, with kids under 12 free. If you’re after an all-ages, good vibes event on a Friday evening, then head to this facebook event link, and follow the instructions there.
