Gorangutang is the musical collaboration of Tra’zae Lewis Clinton and William Thoren. The duo is a hybrid of musical styles that spans many genres and fuses multidrone didgeridoo with primal funk and hip hop.
Tra’zae is a multi instrumentalist with a focus on keyboard and a prolific producer of various musical styles. He is the grandson of funk legend George Clinton and learned to rhyme before he could speak. William is an LA based didgeridoo crafter, performer, and owner of Wet Didgeridoo. He is best known for inventing the multidrone didgeridoo, which expands the instrument’s playable range to work more dynamically within contemporary music.
They first met in Berlin, Germany during the 2011 George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic tour. It was Thanksgiving Day and the first time either had traveled with P Funk outside of the USA. Ironically, less than a year from the Thanksgiving meeting they ended up cutting their first song together: “Yam feat. George Clinton”.
