I felt the music call out to me and go right through me. The music spoke to me and allowed me to feel the connection to the land that the Aboriginal people have. Their spiritual culture is evident through the earthly sounds of the didgeridoo.

This instrument seemed very mysterious to me full of a great charge.The discovery of the circular breathing technique involved in the playing of didgeridoo amazed me I used to think of breath in terms of an alternative discontinuous movement.
