I'm interested in didgeridoos because of the fact that unlike other instruments there are no keys or strings to manipulate the sounds; it's more like a crazy extension of the vocal tract and I also like the relationship one develops with their instrument while they play it--the responses from a didgeridoo are really symbiotic with the player.
