Compassion Gorilla brings a unique concoction of worldbeat, latin folk, dub and psychedelic music. The band enwraps audiences in a spell of dance, magic and melody with racy horn lines, brazen guitar harmonies, driving hand-percussion rhythms, thick basslines, and full-bodied vocal harmonies.
Always searching diverse audiences, Compassion Gorilla has played wide-ranging venues like elementary school fairs, city squares, pubs, nightclubs, gulf island halls, summer festivals, coffee houses, house parties, rallies, and marathon sidelines.
