During the Burning of the Man at Burning Man 2010 I was on the sailing vessel Gypsy Queen with about 30 or 40 of my nearest and dearest new playa friends from our camp. We parked in a great location not far back in the crowd near 12 o’clock. The Space Cowboys art car, which had a massive sound system on it, parked very close to us. Their sound system was as big as their bus, and it dwarfed the one on our vessel so we turned ours off to enjoy theirs. They had some great djs aboard, it sounded awesome and the party was cranking as the Fire Conclave did their stuff. Right when the Man started burning they began playing a fantastic song that was familiar but I couldn’t place it… later on Monday as we Exodus’d out I put on a mix that I had made in 2009 and lo and behold, I came across the song they’d been playing, though they had done some remixing to it along the way.
I share it with you here. It is by Ganga Giri off their 2009 release Good Voodoo, and the name of the song is Pacha Mama (192 kbps). I hope you like it as much as I do. As you listen imagine a neon sculpture of a Man with his arms raised while lots of fireworks are going off in front of you and parts of this song loop hypnotically at 120db right behind you…
