Why interested in Didj

Aaron Petersen from Australia

They can make the most soulful soothing and beautiful sounds I've ever heard and they can also sound as uncompromising as the elements - thunder rain fire and earthquake. They seem to tell a story understandable to any language. And they're very cunning things too. They appear so simple but in that seeming simplicity they hide a universe of complexity and wonder. It's testament to the ingenuity and the connection to the earth of the aboriginal people to conceive something so beautiful of it.

Adam Fisk from USA

I am very interested in the aboriginal arts and cultures and I also love the sound and vibrations I get from this instrument. I would like to support a culture that I strongly believe in.

Adele from United Kingdom

They make an amazing sound-i was first inspired by my uncle who moved out to australia and learnt to play. since then I have bought one of my own. I am also amazed by the aboriginal art that comes with nearly every didj I have ever seen.

Alberto from Spain

Low frequency mind waves and relaxation

Alison from USA

Enjoy the sound of them.

Amber from USA

I have been interested in them for years due to their heart-vibrating sound however I now teach first grade and our curriculum includes the study of Australia. I think it is important to understand the first nations of all places as a vital part of current culture. As a part of that study each child in my class makes and learns to play a didgeridoo including their own personal story in their instrument. We make ours from PVC pipe and though I have shown them several pictures of authentic masterpieces I have not been able to let them see feel and play a real one. I would LOVE to have the opportunity to inspire my students with the real thing!

Andrea from Germany

Memories of my visit in australia nice sound and kind of music some meditative way by playing


Because they give me peace and I love its sound

Cara Hartley from USA

Anonymous from USA

I am from australia and really miss the sounds and smells from home. You know the smell of gum trees and the sound of magpies and galahs in the morning. But there is nothing more aussie than the sound of a great didj player doing their full repertoire.


I simply love all types of music...and the didjeridu is an instrument I would love to learn to play.

Cathy from Canada

I had a chance to try one in Alice Springs. I was the only tourist in the bar that could play it. It was an amazing experience!

Anonymous from Canada

I am interested in didgeridoos because the instrument is so different from traditional western instruments. The sounds that you can make from it are so diverse. I am very new to this instrument so I find it to be very challenging in a good way.

Chelo from Spain

Me gustan mucho

Chris from USA

I love the sound. The vibrations move the world when I hear them.

Chris Cook from USA

I've been interested in Australian Culture since a child. My father lived there for 4 years as a teacher in the '70s and has always been the top of my list for a place to travel. The aboriginal art he has always struck me a beautiful. I am also a percussionist playing a wide variety of hand drums (djembes conga bongos...) and spend a lot of time camping and playing at music festivals. I love the atmosphere didjes create and the amount of feeling they add to music. I have made several out of PVC pipe to learn how to play and until I purchase my first real one.

Christian Montrigaud from Brazil

I'm a music lover and I would like to make experiences. I Really appreciate the aboriginal culture and the sound of the Didgeridoo.

Cyrille from France

Didjeridu is the best way to relax and to feel in harmony with what is all around us. I love listen to birds singing while I play but I also like to play faster it is a real pleasure to let my feelings go by the didjeridu when I do that my spirit is travelling all over the world... Playing with friends is exciting too even and especially because it is quiet rare to find someone to play with.

Dan Freeman from United Kingdom

It's seems to be the only musical instrument that I can naturally play

Anonymous from Spain

Because I find the didgeridoo a very spiritual instrument inside an aboriginal culture that should be preserved and I also like the music it produces and the health benefits it produces to the breathing.

Simple primal natural sounds. I love wilderness- didj's are the sound of wilderness down under.

They are such a basic instrument that can not only make you feel relaxed but can also release you from your worries. Didj's bring both art and music into my life in one package; this is normally a challenging task.

Because the didjeridu's sound touch in my soul

Anonymous from Spain

Because I play didgeridoo since 5 years. I love play didgeridoo.


Didgeridoos are such a natural instrument. You're essentially making music by blowing air through a tree.

Mark from USA

I am a musician (guitar and bagpipes) and love the sound of a didjeridu. Circular breathing can be used to play the practice chanter for the bagpipe so I learned how to do it. The didjeridu seems to allow a lot of freedom regarding the sounds and rhythms that are played. It is mesmerizing.

Mark from United Kingdom

The sound the good way I feel when I play. The healing potential.

Mark from USA

I have always been into music and I fell in love with the Didj the first time I heard it (a solo concert at U. of Washington Seattle). Being a sax player the circular breathing aspect also interested me

P.J. Belic from USA

I am interested in much of the natural and indigenous world. I enjoy learning about different cultures especially those who have a strong affinity with the earth. Art and music are also strong interests of mine. The australian aboriginal culture is one of my favorites to study. I have known about and desired to play the didgeridoo since I was very young. The first time I attempted to play a didgeridoo ( 1994) I was able to achieve back pressure and a good tone. I have been hooked ever since.

Anonymous from USA

I am learning to play one.

Because of the specific sound

Romu from France

'cause it's an musical instrument which it's pleased to play and it's really relaxing to play. ANd it's the older instrument in the world and the more "mystic" it's exciting to play as aboriginals played 40 000 years ago. It's a come back to the real life.

Anonymous from USA

Waqas Khan from Pakistan

Love the sound of them


They are an interface of man and earth with a haunting sound that shakes me at my core. Breath and the heartbeat are the original rhythms and the didge makes great use of them. I'm fascinated by acoustics as a student of the sciences and the didge is a wonderful extension of principles into vibrations:)
