VanderAa talents amassed a passionate global following from their 'Life of a Traveling Musician' video series which showcased the duo's mastery and ever expanding musical palette.
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’ these sun-loving musicians have created a soul changing experience.
“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 we love to share.” - Aaron VanderAa
Burning Man is a stand our 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.
