Love on first site

Brian from USA

How interesting they were not a typical instrument

Anonymous from USA

The warm sound of the wood. The idea that I could turn vulgar noises into a musical tune was awesome. A didgeridoo brought the audience and myself closer to the outdoors somehow. The natural bends in the wood was refreshing and just spoke "You would be cool I you could learn to play a didgeridoo"

It vibrated my bones

Carolyne Williams from USA

After years of doctor's visits to try and correct my adrenal related illness (stress anxiety poor memory inability to concentrate shallow breathing) the first time I felt the power of the didg and blew my first sustained dream-time whisper all of my symptoms subsided. I felt so connected to my body and the Earth and the magic of being truly alive. Oxygen and Love flowed freely through my body and I actually felt balanced. Completely connected to all. My friend said I am a natural player but I have yet to master circular breathing... mostly b/c I only play when I am at his house as it is his didg.

Chad Baloy from USA

I immediately knew that the didj was a healer. It's sound warmed my soul and continues to do so!!

I saw Rolf Harris on tv way back when we lived in the UK and was very impressed with the sound but at that time there was very little information about didgeridoos and I only recently (this Feb) on a visit to Cairns and kuranda found how uplifting the sound was when being performed in the flesh. 0
