Forest Parties

Aardvarkk is the solo psytrance project of Nigel Shiva Valley, a medium-sized, burrowing nocturnal mammal with a long pig-like snout used to sniff out food. He roams over most of the southern two-thirds of the African continent, avoiding mainly rocky areas. A nocturnal feeder, he subsists on ants and termites, which he digs out of their hills using his sharp claws and powerful legs.

In his spare time he writes groovy psychedelic tunes for the night time, and does all kinds of other cool shit.

Nigel is originally from the UK, however any of the Goa regulars would recognise him as being one of the constant faces and driving forces behind the Goa scene. He has spent the last 15 years on the beaches of Goa and has been part of the music and culture there for the past decade. Nigel has single handedly promoted the free parties down on South Anjuna Beach, and has made Shiva Valley a top musical destination for anyone who visits Goa, where not only do they put on banging parties, but also have the widest selection of top international and local artists.
