Why interested in Didj

It's the only instrument that demands total integration without which it is near impossible to produce a sound. It's a meditative instrument. I fell in love with a guy playing one :)

Alex from USA

I was taught to play by a maker/player/performer/teacher named Pitz Quattrone when I was just a little kid. The first time I ever tried to play one it was like I had a natural gift and it amazed me. Right away I started out with my first bamboo didge.

I won a bamboo "didj" in a pub competition in the UK. After playing it for a few years I tried a friend's Oz bought termite didj. I realised that apart from my suspect playing the bamboo didj was pretty bad too. I promised myself that if I was going to get from it would have to be as authentic as possible. I'm about to finish working in New Zealand and find myself in the fortunate position of travelling through Australia for a few weeks with my family on my way back to the UK. A primary aim is to obtain a decent authentic didjeridu through as authentic means as possible!

The didgeridoo is born from nature and its a way to commune with nature. In the playing it's like I become the creatures of the sounds I'm imitating. Its also a part of aboriginal culture which is one of the most unique and creative cultures in humankind. Feeling the drone go thru your body and concentrating on the song is enough to put you into a meditative state. It makes me think of talking with ancestors and the voice of the didgeridoo is the voice of the ancestors. The feeling is like a portal into the past a window into those past lives and knowledge from way back when.

Because of the sound

Its one of those 'hear the sound' things - didges frame drums and irish whistles just click. Not exactly an expected combination!

I'm in a world music class and love listening to aborigine didjeridoo music...so I learned how to play one...but its sound quality is not very good so I'm looking for a new one.

Sam from USA

I have never had musical training in my life but 4 years ago I started playing the didge with my friends and we started jamming with djembes and sticks. It was one of the funniest times I had in high school. We all got really good at our instruments for never having musical training we just played by ear.

Neat sounds

Sasa Zezelic from Croatia/Hrvatska

They are surprisingly simple yet extremely powerful they give me opportunity to express Self and they keep me connected to nature..Here in Zagreb Croatia this simple instrument is a gravity point that brought together many very interesting people - it's amazing!!

Because the didgeridoo and the sounds they create represents a people who deserve to be not only remembered but praised for the propagation of a culture which to most of us is all but forgotten.

Steve from USA

The sound has always fascinated me . . . . having just returned from a trip to Australia where I have purchased a didgeridoo and will am trying to learn to play . . . .

Steve from USA

Playing the didj is a religious experience for me. It is a connection to the Earth to an ancient culture older than any other. The sound and vibrations created by the connection of the human and the didj is the sound of creation...it is a wonderful sound a sacred vibration and a deep emotion that connects the ancient part of my soul with all that is Nature.

I saw one in a catalog once then read up on them. My friends and I are striking up a band and I felt a didgeridoo would be a great and different addition.
