I've heard didjis in movies and on soundtracks but the first time I heard one 'live' was in January of this year (2005 wasn't an option above). At first I wasn't so sure-- I heard it played with music not by itself. I prefer it by itself or with other didjis and/or percussion.

Matt from USA

The sound of the didgeridoo invoked a very primal feeling from within me. It felt as though it resonated with a deeper more authentic part of my being. What came out of the didgeridoo seemed to be the spiritual aspect of reality emphasized if that makes any sense. It seemed to bring what was in the background to the foreground.

Three of them in the key on C and one in the key of D which is mine. We made mouth pieces with bee's wax and hand painted our didjes.
