Compassion Gorilla has a relentless drive to translate earthy and folkloric sounds into an explosive performance fit for the fierce demands of the modern dancefloor.  Their unique brew has been the life of wild dance parties for almost a decade, and while its music defies categorization the band keeps audiences feeling comfortably at home.

The band’s recent travels have taken them to festival stages across western Canada, including highlights at the Victoria International Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam, Robson Valley Music Festival, Northwest Folk Life, Juan de Fuca Music Festival, Victoria Ska Festival, Bella Coola Music Festival, Campbell Bay Music Festival, and Kispiox Valley Music Festival.  They also spent a long stretch of 2013 touring in Mexico, playing over 50 shows in 4 months and coming home with a new album under their belts. “Colibrís en Vuelo” features songs written and arranged on this journey.
