Name and Country

First Experience with a Didj

Anonymous from USA

It looked like fun and sounded great.

Alex Gracia from USA

That it was awesome and that I had to get one and start playing it

Anonymous from USA

I thought the instrument was very distinctively different than anything that I have heard before. the instrument has a very cultural background to the aborigines. the instrument was very awesome to listen to. the first time I heard one being played was in Undara, Australia by an aborigine. the instrument was very appealing and gave me chills every where.

Alexis Gagnon from Canada

It was like a travel into another world...

Alisha Suer from USA

I felt chilled, relaxed, and quite interested. I was visiting Australia and I think I maybe heard one before on tv but the first time I really heard one I had to stop. they were amazing and challenging and I knew this was something I wanted to learn. it seemed to have an entrancing power and soothing tone.

It had an earthy vibe quite unlike any other instrument I had ever heard. It made me want to think, groove, and chill all at the same time.

Primal experience I had where the whole room of people had a shared primal past life regression and some sort of beast took over us / possession. not menacing at all, but definitely looming and present

It's exhilarating relaxing deep sound. I am an avid meditator and was amazed how deep and far back (16th century) I can bring myself with it's sound and the communication abilities of the spirits. I feel there is a purpose and reason of my involvement.

James Saldivar from USA

I was absolutely amazed at the sounds that they made. I always heard them but didn't know exactly what instrument they were until about late 1999. I met someone who plays and he taught me I have been hooked since and have a small bamboo. but I want something larger and more capable of doing what I am capable of doing. I play my didj with both the side and front of my mouth

It's a very interesting instrument of air

Justin Peterson from USA

Karen Ramey from USA

I felt a mysterious primal emotion. I think it resonated with the first chakra. This past year I heard one live at a local "sound chamber" (these are built all over the world and you guys have several there in Australia). I wanted to play it but felt I need instruction first.

Anonymous from Germany

Beautiful harmonic sounds ...another dimension of music experience

Anonymous from Canada

It was a really unique sound and that's what made me like it

Kelly Hutchinson from United Kingdom

I was at a concert, an english band called the Levellers and they used the Didje on a couple of their tracks, I fell in love with it but it wasn't until 2002 that I got my first didjeridu. I am now so passionate about the didje that nearly all my time is taken up with going to festivals and teaching, I love it so much I started up my own club in my local city of Reading which regularly gets between 30 and 40 people each month coming to learn to play this the most wonderful of all instrument!

Kenneth Houghton from United Kingdom

I fell in love with the haunting "earthy" sound and wanted to try and play.

It was a nice low sound. I had to know what it was and from where it was. It just took my stomach and I felt cold 'stuff' in my back. It was just incredible that one instrument could do that to me.

I have always been fascinated by the sound. It is very tribal, spiritual.

Tim Whalen from USA

Absolutely loved it,it enveloped me and drew me in.The folk playing that night took me in and shared their night, food, and music with me as if I were one of their own. I'll never forget that feeling and now do my best to do the same for others even if I don't play the didg all to well I've found many ways to recreate that.
