Gin Ga - Dancer
4 GIFs and a sentence per music video
Choreographies are so much better than any other music video content.
No Limit - Gin Ga
In their latest video, Gin Ga once again tell you how to pronounce their name and then proceed to sing a cover of an early 1990s eurodance song in what seems to be the contents of somebody’s garage.

GinGa played a decent energetic set. Besonders schön: das No Limit cover (2 Unlimited, 1992). Alex Konrad: “Ein Lied aus meiner Kindheit.” Und auch aus meiner.

Thanks to GinGa (who couldn’t use their train tickets), the Austrian Cultural Forum Warsaw (that paid for these tickets), FM4 (that gave these tickets away) and tour manager Reini (simply the best), going to Warsaw instead of writing my thesis was definitely the right decision.
Paula & Karol, a band from Poland that also played at Waves Vienna, were dancing and singing along to Diver in the audience. Then I got to see GinGa from the front row (that wouldn’t be possible in Vienna!). After that, Rangleklods. Warsaw is a beauty, too!

Gin Ga - Dancer
If there is anything we love - besides boats, of course, and bread, and books, and other things that start with a B - it is choreographies. Choreographies are super. Especially if they contain fake slow motion. Bound to go viral!
Dancer - Ginga
Dancer is being hailed as the highlight from Ginga’s upcoming Nights EP but hm. hm hm hm. This was so much stronger in concert. Hm. I’m going to listen to the whole thing to form a proper opinion.
Ginga - One Of Us (They Shoot Music Primavera Sound Sessions)
Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk.
- ABBA, Thank You For The Music
One Of Us is not the only thing on the The Nights EP that makes a (conscious?) reference to ABBA. This EP, by the way, took forever to see the light of day. When I saw Ginga for the first time (and one night before I left for my exchange year), they had just re-recorded and re-released their debut album after having been the first Popfest’s sensational discovery. When they came to my exchange country eight months later, they not only filled the town’s main square with people, but they also played Dancer - which sounded slightly different then than it does now on the EP - but no details of an upcoming album were known yet.
Fast forward to a year later: Even at the official EP release concert in Vienna this spring, the four tracks weren’t available yet. However, finally (and without a big noise, at least I wasn’t aware of it until recently), since June it is out, and it sounds rougher than the debut album, while at the same time still being every bit as catchy and energetic.
Ginga (Gin Ga?): You Know. New and rough! We laughed at the lady announcing the band last weekend as “dschin gaah”, but it turns out this may just be the new way to pronounce the band name.
One crappy cellphone picture per band, Ginga, April 29th, Flex, EP-release concert
Ginga played a concert last week to celebrate the release of their EP that is not released yet (late May we’ve been told, kiddos, don’t worry). They played a very long set with lots of new songs, some of which will be on the EP, the rest presumedly on the album released later this year. Unfortunately the band was a bit rusty and uncoordinated at times. There is much to look forward too though since most of the new songs were catchy tunes, sometimes with a very 80s synth feeling to it - which is always a good thing in the walzerkönig camp - so we’re curious to hear more.
