BioAriane Macavoy and Goa Gil are The Nommos. Gil is an accomplished DJ who is known for 24 hour long trance dance sets from DAT tapes; Ariane is an African dance instructor and percussionist. The two met in 1985 and have been at each other's side ever since. Spending their winters in Anjuna Beach, Goa, India, and then touring the world the rest of the year, they've helped pioneer the global techno trance sound. Internationally, countless producers have followed their lead. Psychedelic consciousness, galactic spirituality and a futuristic vision based on ancient tribal roots are common themes throughout their work, which has been released around the world on a number of labels during the trance era. The Nommos have at times included Kode IV's Peter Ziegelmeier.
