Alan from United Kingdom

Heard the Didj being played during my first visit to Aus and was completely blown away by the incredible sound. It almost sounded electric and I knew at that point I had to give it a try. I had one shipped from Cairns about six months ago and I have been practicing ever since.

I was amazed and awed by its deep resonance and the continuous monotonous while at the same time varied and "true" sound. Its all about the player and his/her connection with instrument and himself/herself.

AMAZING!!! I really was blown away by the sound and overall presence that a didgeridoo out in a place.

Annie Hart from Australia

It is the sound of the infinite nature of The Dreaming. It is the song that travels the other way - from us back to the Spirits of the Dreaming. It serenades the Spirits who are sleeping and as it does it soothes the souls of we children who are awake.

I felt the listening experience to be very relaxing and exciting at the same time. I had no idea there was even an instrument out there like this. I just happened to run across a person at a festival of crafts who was demonstrating it. I knew I wanted to start playing one right away. I have a plastic learner and I want to move up to a better sound quality and am shopping around at this time.

Fascinating sound. Interesting history. Enjoy listening to various chords and sounds made thru it

Erica Milford from USA

I wasn't sure what it was called I was watching the rescuers down under (walt disney) when I was so young I had no idea what it was until about 5th grade when I was beginning to learn about people around the world that interested me. I built one in 7th grade not knowing how to play it I placed it in my closet. Until one day in 9th grade I was walking downtown and I saw a man walking and I asked him how to play and he got me started never knew his name or profession history or future but will remember him always. I have now participated in talent shows and used to take my didge to school every other day in 12th grade college seems trying though.

Etienne from France

Crazy !! in french "stupéfiant intriguant énergisant"

Fırat Güner from Turkey

I was spelled from the original and intimate sound. I think Didj has a lot of feelings in its sound more of the nature than mankind. Just as electronic music is the common sound for mankind in the world didj is the common sound for nature ...

Fábio Gomes from Portugal

LOVE love love.

Fadi Khawand from Lebanon

First I felt the vibes moving threw my hole body I couldn't imagine it really at the beginning when I heard it on the tv in 2000.I directly asked him if he can teach me he knew a friend of mine. I have a background in drums so I thought catching the tempo on an instrument like that isn't hard. so he got me a bamboo didge and started teaching me. I fell in love with that instrument so much. I got the sound right in the first 3 days and started circular breathing in the next week. I kept on practicing 7 hours daily for a minimum for I'm a free lancer in my job.now I consider myself a really good player and that's what many foreigners that are hearing are telling.and I discovered somehow a new type of drive that's near to oriental.now I'm still playing with the same bamboo didge with a band that I formed.we are a didge 2 jembes 1 bongos a sax. and an oriental flute called (nay). now I'm really thinking of making a cd and I'd be really happy to make it with a real concert type aboriginal didge. thank u
