Why interested in Didj

Anonymous from Finland

Because it's a cool and useful instrument and it doesn't need hands to play - free hands for drums or guitar

Aaron from USA

I am a professional didge player

Adam Brill from United Kingdom

Having travelled around Australia back in 2002 I learnt to play a didjeridu and bought a fantastic didj whilst I was there.

Adam from Canada

Ever since I was young I have always loved the sound of the didj but only in the past few months have I decided to learn how to play one. After constructing one from PVC pipe and learning how to play it (sometimes even with a guitar) I feel that I have discovered a very special musical instrument that I will play until my lips fall off. I have not yet become a great player but I practice it every day sometimes for several hours. I have also been learning quite a bit more about aboriginal culture especially now that I am borrowing such an important piece of it.

I love how they sound I've started playing them a few years ago and I got the hang of it real quickly.

Anonymous from USA

I myself have always loved the sound. The deep longing sound of the instrument. I have only heard the instrument played in movies and on television but every time it is one of those sounds that you can close your eyes and actually feel inside your self as it is played. I am hoping to win this as a gift for my father. He is a very musical person and can play many instruments from all over. He is mostly self taught but very good at it. Music is his life and his passion. And it is my hopes to win this for him. He loves to learn new instruments and I know he can do this.

The amazing sounds

Tara from USA

I have been interested in the deep soul-filled sounds of the Earth that came through Didgeridoos since I first heard them as a teen. I have always had a calling to Australia and the beautiful Aboriginal culture and plan to visit within the next couple of years. I have studied shamanism many places in the world including Tibet Nepal Peru South Africa Egypt Mexico and Ireland. Sound healing is a part of each shamanic tradition in some way but there is something about the Didgeridoo that calls to me and I would be honored to have one to learn how to play and eventually take others on the powerful Didj Journeys. I bought one back when I was a teen that was for decoration only. Now I dream of one that I can learn bond and grow with.
