Why interested in Didj

Alon from United Kingdom

I have since I was twelve ( I'm only 16 now!) been fascinated by the didj. It is the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. As soon as I got into it I felt I had an obligation to learn about the aborigine culture. In doing this I have been able to appreciate it more for its spiritual qualities and the role it plays in some aborigine cultures. This has made me a devout player! I have been trying to teach in my school from my limited knowledge the role it plays in aborigine culture and alerting people of the ever growing problems aborigines face.

Amy from USA

They sound cool and I heard they are a cure for sleep apnea. Plus I just like the name and it would be fun to tell people I play the didgeridoo.

Andreo Soares from Brazil

'cause I'm percussion and listening Yothu Yindi I search about Didgeridoo and became me a lover didgeridoo.

Anonymous from Italy

Ho parenti in Australia e me ne hanno parlato sin da piccolo mi ha sempre affascinato al punto che me lo sono fatto regalare. lo suono da poco e penso di essere sulla strada giusta. E veramente rilassante e molto salutare visto che per suonare ho tolto il vizio di fumare. Sicuramente un buon motivo per continuare e perché no se riuscissi a buoni livelli.

Greg from Australia

I'm an Aussie born boy and have the greatest respect for our land owners

Greg from United Kingdom

I travelled Australia and whilst there had the chance to decorate my own didge. Unfortunately it is really hard to play and has become more of an artwork piece. I am frustrated as I know with other friends didges I am becoming pretty good but need my own to become a better player.

Originally I liked the didge but wasn't keen enough to pick it up. Now I live in Japan. When I went back to Brisbane for Christmas I heard a didgeridoo playing and realised that this was something I had been missing out on for all this time. So I bought one and I play it here in Japan.

Jaime from Spain

Seven months ago I went to a medieval market where I saw a young man playing a didgeridoo. He was selling didgeridoos and when I passed from his side he started to doing a demonstration. The sound caught myself. So I decided to buy him a didgeridoo. The man gave me a few basic lessons in this moment to be able to play didgeridoo and since then I practice every day a little to someday be able to play it well.

James from Canada

I love world music and would love to learn to play as many culturally unique instruments as possible

Jeremy from France

Didgeridoo is relatively simple to play and is a marvelous instrument it allow to trip without move just the spirit. Its vibrations are really driving. But the best with a didge is that when we hear its sound we automatically think about the most beautiful country on earth: Australia also it permits me to dream that I am in Australia while I am in france... in my room...

Anonymous from USA

Recently heard one for the first time on a trip to Cairns and was taken by the sounds that can be produced. Also I am interested in them as an art object.

Jim from USA

I am a former musician (trumpet) and enjoy ethnic music. I have much interest in instruments that produce significant overtones and also interest in overtone singing. I am interested in the relationship between the didgeridoo and meditation/shamanism.

Anonymous from Ukraine

1. For me didgeridoo and jew's harp are the most honest instruments in the world - with no strings keys etc you play on them with yourself 2. I use to play world beat music as a dj in Ukraine and accompany myself on didge and jew's harp 3. When I've first heard the sound of didgeridoo - it made not only my day - but my months and years.

I use them as part of my work

Kristen from USA

Went to australia; loved the music; we are designing our master bed to the aboriginal cultural.

L. G. from USA

Just like musical instruments and heard they help with sleep apnea

Latoya Mendez from USA

I was first introduced to a pvc didj about 4 years ago at a friends house. He was learning how to play and I ventured to try as well. Every time I went to visit I would spend some time trying to get the right sound - and one day it happened! I think my friend was just as excited he began to play more and would get me to check out whatever he had learned since I had seen him last. The day he learned circular breathing was when I was completely taken in - I spent some time trying again and again and finally one day it was like woosh - you take that breath and it feels right - I have been hooked since then! Every time I visit we must jam the didjes. For a long time this was the only chance I would get to play - my friend invested in couple of didjes - and found a nice long piece of pvc for me to practice at home! - Now I am very partial to long didjes! I am often tempted to by a real didj but do not make much money and always feel so guilty when I try to proceed checking out!R

Leo Thomas from France

I love the sound

Lindsey from USA

I have always been fascinated by the sound of the Didgeridoo. The deep tones vibrate inside me and feel like they go directly to my heart. I haven't put my finger on the direct connection but there certainly seems to be one. I am going to begin using the Didj in meditation and healing.

Malcolm Pengelley from United Kingdom

I've heard it in movies before and thought nothing of it; but today a friend of mine was playing his didjeridu (this was the first time I had ever seen one let alone heard one in person) and I thought to myself "I have to learn how to play this instrument."

Sheila from Brazil

Because I'd like to know more about all musical instruments.

Anonymous from Canada

I am very interested in the culture of Australia and find the musical traditions to be amazing. I have been given the opportunity to research Australian music for a grade twelve music project at my school Holy Name of Mary. I will be focusing on the didjeridu in my presentation and would love to be able to bring my own didjeridu into the classroom. I believe that bringing in this amazing instrument to show the class would help the other students to appreciate Australian music.

The culture and the sound: the simplistic complexity the smooth richness; When I pick up a didj I feel the sound come through me and become prayer a soulful song. There's so much to learn!

Steven Williams from USA

Enjoy the variety of sounds that can be made and playing is like an endless journey of new discoveries.

Stuart Clyens from Denmark

I play Irish folk music and one day an Aussie turned up at our weekly Sunday session carrying a didj. Of course we all gave this guy pretty good ribbing about his instrument. I recall the word drainpipe being mentioned several times. However all ribbing stopped when he started playing and joined in one of our reels with a powerful and hypnotic wow-wow sound spot on the beat. After the reel finished we all sat around amazed and excited with this new sound and its possibilities. We practically insisted that our new Aussie pal play along the rest of the evening. On one number he started adding dog bark and growling effects which totally transformed the piece and as soon as we finished we played the whole thing again straight off just for the hell of it. Ever since that day I have been telling myself I must get a didj and learn to do the same. Unfortunately living in Denmark I did not really feel that I knew enough about didjes to order one. Then -happy day -a friend recommended I take a look at Didjshop web site and I did and now I know a lot more about selecting a didj - what to look for and what to avoid. Thanks Stuart Clyens Denmark

Thom Van Dusen from USA
