Brien Porter from USA

I am not just interested in the didge! I am devoted to it! Why? The didge and I have become one. It is an extension of myself. I meditate with it practice sound healing entertain the public instruct its practice compose music with it etc. etc. There are so many ways it has become a part of my life. The didge is the tool I use to bridge my mind and shift from one consciousness into the next.

Natural sound

Charlie from USA

I find them to be very relaxing to play and a great way of expressing yourself.

Chris Yerlig from USA

Apart form drums it is an instrument that gives satisfying results as soon as you learn how to make the basic sound. I haven't mastered other instruments and the relative rarity of players can make you an expert quickly.

Christian from Sweden

A beautiful instrument both for the eye and the ear the didjeridoo is probably the oldest wind instrument and one of the most versatile instruments in the world. Being hugely underrated outside of Australia I feel that the didjeridoo deserves more recognition in the world. It still creates the magic it did centuries ago and that fact just blows my mind. I love it!

Got my first didge for Xmas by my girl friend. she thought it would be a good instrument to play for a spiritual person. Then I started playing and last year we had the pleasure to have Mark Atkins to stay with us. Since that time I am really into it.

Anonymous from Belgium

Since 10 years I play this beautiful instrument. I started without any musical knowledge and while playing and the years went by I learned a lot about music rhythms harmony and myself... Together with that it combines cultures. With teaching the didge too children in schools my first objective is always to explain more about Australia and aboriginal history then playing music.

Johan Thaens from Belgium

I think the sound of a didge must be one of the oldest possible sounds that mankind can produce today and of which one can be certain that it must have sounded like that before history ever started. Compare it to the sound of water of wind of nature's forces... only this one we make ourselves... probably that's why playing the didge brings me even further then 'myself'

Cause of the vibrations that give me and it s from the great aboriginal tribes

Shane from Malaysia

When I was younger I had a very powerful experience as many people do nowadays that changed my life I had no choice but to throw away all my old belief systems because once you have a realization you can't turn around and say I didn't really see that so I spent my time trying to understand this new reality that had been brought to my perception. The experience was one of total oneness with the universe not an understanding or a concept of oneness but for a split second of a moment that was all there was and I was convinced that through an understanding of this space within ourselves we as human beings would be capable of things never previously imagined possible I was constantly trying to find a way back into this space. I was sitting on the beach in Koh Phangan and I heard the didj being played for the first time that was it for me I was hooked the vibration seemed to take me effortlessly into that space that I was constantly trying to be absorbed into. I got my first didj (if you can call it a didj ) a few years later and I haven't stopped playing since.

Have been Interested in the didj for many reasons. I have worked for many years with disabled and leaning impaired children and am interested in the responses to various stimulus.
