First Experience with a Didj

Aaron Blake from USA

I first heard a didge on television as background music during a program. I was completely captivated by this new sound and started asking everyone I knew what they thought it was. I made it my mission to seek out more didge music and to try and make one.

Adam Hammons from USA

Whoa, what is that?

It is the relaxing tone that reached deep inside

The sound is similar a brazilian instrument (berrante).

It in a shop. A man said to me how to play, I tried and it was a strange sound for me, but I though what a beautiful sound ! Two years later I buy my first didj. I was exiting to play with my own didj. I would thank this man who said me how to play.

I saw it first at the summer 2000 olympics. A runner from the US was playing it on a perch in sydney and as I heard him play I could see he was spiritually moved by the didge. From then on I knew I wanted to feel that way as well.

Cool sound, great looking

I loved the sound, it was so relaxing and haunting- but in a real - almost spiritual way. It felt natural and I love to practice as often as I can.
