Hace vibrar todo mi ser y me sirve para meditar. El ejercicio respiratorio produce una concentración tal que pareciera como que me desprendo de mi cuerpo. O que tomara una mayor conciencia de mi entorno.

It was badly played by someone having it just to be cool. I had a bad impression

Anonymous from USA

How beautiful it was and what a unique sound it had.

Barry M. Hancock from USA

I loved the tone immediately -- that was what caught my attention. Then I saw the player and thought, "Yes! What a simple (mechanically) instrument! I can play that."

Bart Boogaard from Netherlands

Mysterious and very rooted I think because the sound was so familiar and therefore overwhelming cause I'd never heard it before I just new I had 2 play it

What is that sound! I want to find out what type of instrument makes that sound. Anyway I found out what it was then I could never seem to find a place that sold them till I went to Portland OR. The didj is a very important part of my life now.

Fantastic, natural

Chris Welsh from Australia

Amazed at the sound it made the hair on my neck stand up

Chris Yerlig from USA

I was very young when I heard Rolf Harris play didge on TV, so I don't remember my response. However, I have since come to discover that rather than evoking a feeling, from my later contact with live didges I just 'knew' that 'this was me', like an extension of myself.

I thought it was a sweet sounding instrument and something I would LOVe to try out

Anonymous from Canada

I had heard them incidentally in the past, but this was the first time I heard one live. I thought it sounded cool and was intrigued by circular breathing.

David Smith from Canada

Stopped me in my tracks. I couldn't get enough. The vibratory tone did many things to and for me. I went straight out and made a boomerang ... Hey it came back first throw. Popped up right in front of my face and dropped right in my hand. Like it knew where it was going. I was so proud. I don't think I put it down for a week. I think I was about 12-13 years old. I've always wanted to go to the rock there. Something draws me. I am a practicing native spiritual person. An old one there has seen me in the dream time ways. Well I like your site and hope someday to have a didjeridoo of my own. They take me many places. Love and peace to all my brothers and sisters down under. In answer to the question below . I have recently had one of life's upsets and now own no didjeridoo music on any media. I will one day again. That's what I am doing here. Looking for some good traditional old tunes that I can down load. Bear Eagle Dave Smith

Dawn Thorp from USA

Very different

Anonymous from USA

Muy mistico,el sonido,maravilloso,lo translportar a un plano espiritual.


I thought the sound was magic

Gilles Brouiller from France

A great tribal and truth sound, close to the original first musical sound obtained by an human. Somewhere, Didg allow to ear today the musical sound already played many centuries ago by aboriginal people, and that's absolutely wonderful ! (in a way, "Djembe" drum from Africa can be compared to didg..., and it's great to play both !)

I thought it was immense, powerful, hypnotic.

Such a strange sound. I wondered what instrument it was

Jean-paul Massie from Canada

I heard a Cristal Didgeridoo at a Christmas concert with Sacred Cristal bowls. I had my eyes closed and that was a strong body experience. I remember that I was completely enchanted and pleased to hear those powerful sounds. And I already knew that I'll learn to play. After the concert, I purchased my first Cristal Didgeridoo and a chakra seven Cristal bowls. I was already able to play on the didg and the musician-seller had a vision of me in a past life in Tibet, playing that very long instrument who's play by the monks.

Wow. I've got to learn some more about this haunting sound.
