Name and Country

First Experience with a Didj

Adam Wisby from Australia

I found a feeling of oneness with the sound like coming home to a place I had been once before

Anonymous from France

I don't really remember!

Anonymous from Australia

I was a school kid at the time and to be honest it captivated me a true tribal earthy sound that I thought only native aboriginal people could & were allowed to play. As much as I can remember I just wanted to keep listening to this native Aboriginal busker play in the middle of Melbourne city (think it was Swanston street at the time actually) haha I gave him some money too! He was amazing the tones and sounds he could get out of this piece of wood, blew my mind. I always have had the urge to get one for myself since then,I wish now I should have learned to play sooner.

Ali Rifat Aykan from Turkey

Attended an Aboriginal ceremony just outside of Darwin NT. Flying foxes flew from the trees. It was very mystical...made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.


Wonderfully unique sound! Awe-inspiring!




How haunting the sound, as if you were in another dimension in time.


It is a so marvelous sound...


I thought was cool

Cyril Paquier from France

The very first time I heard a didg, I cried of joy ... it was in "Sydney Festival", The Gypsy Festival in January 1997. I used to work there with a french band, named "Tekameli". We decided to meet Aborigines and try to have some contact with aboriginal people. We knew some white people who knew some fellahs of the Aboriginal Community in Sydney, in Redfern. and one week later 3 ambassadors of the community came to visit us. After a moment of questioning we invited them to the place where we had accommodations. And those 3 guys played us a "welcoming song", and I cried of joy ... Because it was such an experience !!! I remember this day as if it was yesterday, some kind of rebirth, really... One of those 3 guy was Gary J. Simon, who is Aboriginal, he became my friend and by the way taught me circular breathing and since that date I didn't stop playing and dreaming my didg'. We've been in Survival Day '97 at La Perouse to listen to other great didjeridoo players, a lot! Yes believe me it was such a fantastic moment in my life !!! For me the didjeridoo was some kind of revelation, as if it wasn't the very first time I heard it in fact, an impression of "deja vu", I'm sure you see what I mean... The very strong feeling you have, when you know something without being able to explain it ... And by the way thank you for you web site it is excellent ;) !!! Thank you soooo much !

D Nolan from USA

A very strong connection, I had to learn to play!!

Eric Jaramillo from USA

Have been fascinated with extraordinary sounds since a child. The didj epitomizes my fascination.

Anonymous from USA

What an awesome sounding, exotic (for me) instrument. It stirs something deep within me.


Its a beautiful instrument with a great sound, we where in Australia and there I tried to play on a didj. it was very difficult. We had to leaf the country very quick because my sister had a terrible accident, so I didn't have the time to buy a didj in Australia. Now I'm looking for to buy this beautiful instrument so I can start to lear to play.

Great! blow out your soul in harmony with universe

Anonymous from Ireland

Weird , I thought it was full of energy but yet very spiritual.

Anonymous from Netherlands

I play "midwinterhoorn", typical Dutch, region Achterhoek, Twente. Like a didge but another technique. I wonder how a didge will play..... See www.midwinterhoornblazers.nl. If I can get a didge from you I can make a midwinterhoorn for you, the "Dutch Didge"

Francisco Labrador from Spain

I was really impressed. Goethe syndrome, if you know...

Franco Amigoni from Italy

A strong emotion. Vibrations deep inside my soul.

Anonymous from USA

I thought they sounded really neat and looked cool as they were the first ones I had ever seen or heard in person. they have such an ethereal sound quality that kind of mesmerises any and everybody within range. it's a real soulful sound that kind of de-or un stress's or relaxes you and makes you very introspective and happy at the sametime. Needless to say I really enjoyed it!

George Macaulay from United Kingdom

Really neat sound. I knew I had to get one but only if I had actually been in australia first. I was really excited when I could first drone and spent ages choosing my first didjeridoo

Anonymous from Italy

It's amazing how the vibes resound in all your body relaxing you immediately

It was in Cairns and I was sold. Bought a cheap one (which cracked!) and picked up playing in 6 days. Bought a bloodwood (135cm, tone E) play it daily. Looking for a second didj.

Jeff Parker from USA

I thought he could hold his breath a long time.


I thought it was amazing.



Jit Gill from USA

Eire, Peace, earth, and a sense of belonging. The sound of the Didjeridu gave me a feeling of peace and harmony

Joe Espin from United Kingdom

I thought it was a great instrument even though I was only very young at the time. I've always wanted one since I saw one on TV, just think its a great shame I hadn't got one earlier!!

Joel Howard from USA

Its a sound that can move a person in a strange way, very calming.

John Watson from USA

Well, my yoga teacher John plays them and he brought his into class so we could feel the vibrations of the sound in our system. He had a total of 3. I've always liked the sound immensely and a few years back I got into electronic music, noticing how the synth sounds are often similar to the sounds of the Didj. It felt, amazing, for obvious and easy to understand lack of words. At that moment I knew it was something I wanted to integrate more fully into my cellular memory :)


Strange sounding, but it struck my curiosity.

Justin Linn from USA

Awesome, beautiful sound. it is very relaxing, one of a kind sound

Kari Rosenthal from USA

I thought that it was one of the most exciting things I have ever seen. Instantly I was drawn to the didj. Every time I hear or see one, I am drawn to it. In school in Boulder Colorado I was able to borrow a friends for a couple weeks, that was the time I became comfortable with one. I have not been able to own one because I can't afford one, but it is one of my materialistic goals. I can not describe the way I feel when I hear a didj, because it is indescribable. I believe it to be very powerful.

Keegan Schelling from USA

I was curious as to what or whom could be making such a noise, when I found the source of the noise I was surprised to see it coming from a big stick

Keith Gordon from USA

Wonderful, primitive haunting sound

Kelly Osborn from USA

Found it interesting

Anonymous from USA

I thought it was the most unique sound ever and I was amazed that it kept going on instead of gaps for air like other instruments like the flute or clarinet or trumpet.

Kenny Hansen from USA

I thought the didj was an awesome sound and would be a great addition to use in meditation.

Kevin Daniel from USA

Amazing. Mystical, beautiful, and intriguing.

Anonymous from Australia

Freaky sound

Kristina Hunter from USA

I heard it as I was walking through Stockholm, Sweden and heard 2 travelers playing together. I didn't know what the beautiful sound was and I followed it thinking it was monks or something. I then sat beside them listening for an hour.

Anonymous from Finland

Great sounding instrument

Laura Ward from USA

Couldn't imagine how it could be musical

Leandro Mussini from Argentina

La primera vez que tuve en mis manos un didgeridoo sentí que era algo ancestral y sagrado. Me sentía conectado con la escénica de la tierra y con las otras personas presentes, que tocaban otros instrumentos. Fue un momento mágico, y ya no pude ser ajeno al mundo del didj.

Anonymous from USA

Fascination that so many tones could come from one instrument at the same time. Music has always been in my life and knowledge of a new instrument was thrilling; I had to have one.

I was quite young, my friends dad use to play and I can remember sitting beside him for hours in awe at the powerful, yet peaceful sound that came out from this strange piece of wood he had.
