Name and Country

First Experience with a Didj

Aaron Palmer from USA

I thought it was the most transifying( is that a word)?? sound ever, I've heard many instruments before, but I become mystified by its tone




When I became conscious of being australian

Alan Gebhart from USA

A didj is a product very uniquely associated with Australia. Although most people in the US don't know what it's called, and can't pronounce it even if they do, most people can associate one with Australia.
