Name and Country

First Experience with a Didj

Anonymous from USA


Alex Martinez from Spain

I think that its sound isn't from the human side of the world. It's more mystic. It's like the wind, or the earth... I don't know... It's natural

Anonymous from USA

Weird but cool Aborigine tool

Anonymous from USA

Awesome vibrations

Anonymous from USA

It had a very unique sound, made me think of a place like Africa or Australia

Blair Taylor from Australia

It sounds great and I was begging my dad to buy me one but he wouldn't because we are poor and they cost us too much

Bob Rudy from USA

I was euphoric. Couldn't get enough.

Bradley Keegan from USA

Euphoric. It surrounded my body and mind in way that the drum could not match for me. Being a djembe player since I was 14 that is a big thing to me.

Brett Dackiewicz from Australia

Soulful ... I love the complex rhythms and sounds the didj creates... makes me want to dance !

Brett Lamarche from USA

It sounds amazing

Powerful interesting sound... What is that instrument?

Colleen Way from Canada

Very moving experience with a deep connection to the earth

Corrado Bove from Italy

Moo me ne faro uno...lo suonero ovunque...so nartist

Craig Fowler from Australia

The sound is unique


When I first heard a didg close up being played well, I had just been holidaying on Yorke Peninsula, South Australia. At that time, I had experienced a kind of profound connection with the earth which made me relate deeply to the kind of feelings Aboriginal people must have felt towards that same land, long ago when they were still living traditionally in that particular region. The sound of the didgeridoo seemed to completely encompass those feelings and just came out at me as being an incredibly powerful sound that I could relate to in a spiritual way- I decided then and there that I had to learn!

Dale Sicily from Australia

Thought it was the most awesome sound that I have ever heard

David Acuff from USA


David Carmichael from USA

What a wonderful way to express the spiritual connection between indigenous peoples and the elements of nature around them; it resonates through the whole body and evokes a sense of belonging to the place around us.

Its totally awesome, I would love to attempt to master the didj

Erin Opalek from USA

"I want to learn how to play that!" The sound was unlike other conventional instruments, and therefore interested me very much.


I had no idea what the cool sound was so I found out in a year that it was called a didgeridoo!



Jacobo Salleh from Mexico

My son played the didj for me and I realized that the sound it created was absolutely amazing we became fans of the didj and we ordered a didj from svargo over here it was an awesome experience and I would really love to win this didj to give it as a gift to my little son.

Jacques Lasselle from Canada

Return to the source inside me

Eerie - almost supernatural. I FELT it, as well as heard it.


Powerful musical experience. I was learning to play the Scottish bagpipes and thought that the didj was an instrument that I would someday like to play.

The didj has a wonderful rich sound full of culture.

Anonymous from United Kingdom

Thought the sound was amazing,real sound of the australian outback.made me feel I had to get and learn to play a didji.

Jayme Allen from USA

Like nothing I had heard before I knew that one day I had to learn to play.

Jeff Fullmer from USA

Upon first hearing diji I was immediately taken with the urge to find out what instrument made that sound. The sound of the diji seemed to re-introduce me to my roots. It was a sound that brought back memories from my childhood along with forgotten senses, such as the smell of mud when your playing in it and the care free outlook simply of going outside to play. Today the sound of a diji makes me stop and take a breath and study the sky or notice the ground, how a garden is set up or how the grass or weeds grow. It bring out the artistic quality of nature.

Jeff Meyer from USA

What an awesome sound it made, and it looked like fun to play

Jeff Phillips from USA

I was mesmerized & then eventually bought one of my own.

Jenny Hebert from USA

What a unique instrument

I had always wanted my own didj, and one day while walking around the local shopping centre,I just heard this droning coming out of this one shop and I saw this guy playing didj, and I just thought to myself, 'I want one'

Anonymous from United Kingdom

I thought that the sound was beautiful and hypnotic, and the range of complex sounds surprising for a simple instrument.


Odd sound but ok...

Anonymous from USA

Interesting and unusual.

Kenneth Shapley from United Kingdom

I first heard a man called Gary Thomas playing at a friends in Brighton. My heard flew open and I just knew this was the instrument for me.What was it like? "Wombingness and boomingness and the time curlings of a dream, ancestral voices speaking within." I went straight down the woods and made me a split Didge and asked him for lessons. Since then I have made 40 or so Didges, owned 5 Aboriginal Didges which I have given away to others who love the instrument.

Kevin Cooke from USA

It touched me in a very basic way. It was a feeling of the earth, of time unknown and of ancient knowledge.

Kyle Hatanaka from USA

It was a divine work of art

I saw a guy playing one in British Colombia, I was really young, I just thought it was super cool, But then my buddy started playing about 2 years ago and I found the great spiritual and energetic powers it held so I decided to start playing myself.

When I first heard the didge while looking for tribal music, I was immediately moved and felt compelled to learn more about it and it's founders. Since then, I have bought a few didge CD's and use them to feel more in touch with nature which is a great stress reliever.
