From Australian desert scapes to Sydney’s urban jungle through the European festival scene via a recording studio in London and back again. Dynamic music duo, married couple and part time nomads Missy and Dan aka Ginger and the Ghost give it up in the run up to the launch of their new album, New Rituals. Tomorrow’s tribe today.

Shaman ways and festival days make for a rich, hypnotic culture clash that sounds like the visual feast you see. Raw energy aplenty unites a rhapsody of vocal styles and the strong understanding between the songbird – Ginger and the sage –  The Ghost, that allows for pure flow and free form that engages on every level. Their live shows are must see.



Into the wild in black and white all over. Missy wears Dsquared2 catsuit, “Jilji” print scarf by Jimmy Pike for Desert Designs, Vintage kimono stylists own, One Another Tribe print scarf as turban, custom Claire Pony ceramic apron. Dan wears his own shirt and shorts, “Witch Doctor” print scarf and trousers by Jimmy Pike for Desert Designs. Vintage hat and belt stylists own.


Tribal remix. Missy wears her own vintage kimono, Dsquared2 bodysuit, DSTM harness from Baby likes to Pony, African wax trousers and bracelet stacks – stylists own. Necklaces, a selection from Sollis Jewellery. Don’t mess and bless in one.


You can listen to this visual optimism too…on  Soundcloud + YouTube It sounds like what it looks like. Primal Nature personified. Dan in the ritual of dance wears Black Krsna Hare Loop pants, Jane Reilly neck piece and vintage top.

Hope you enjoy. Xx
