Why interested in Didj

Anonymous from USA

First heard one on my local radio station about 10-12 years ago by a group called outback. Got the cd. Everyone liked it especially the kids. About five years ago my daughter wanted one for xmas. Located one from a person in Delaware for a very reasonable price. It was termite hollowed but painted by him. It looks ok but would have preferred it plain. I ended up playing it the most for a while and was trying to learn circular breathing with it. I have a strong connection with this instrument while playing it one evening before going to bed had a vision of a person (appeared to be a native aboriginal). Love to listen and play the didj and some day use it for healing at the reiki shares that I attend.

Jeannine from USA

Many years ago I lived in Tacoma WA where a nearby park held a yearly Ethnicfest. There were didgeridoo players (and many other wonderful performers) and even a workshop to make pvc Didjes for kids. I like the sound and recently my partner and I discovered that didj playing has been recommended as a remedy for snoring (a strengthening exercise as it were). This sounds terrible but it gives me the excuse I need as an apartment dweller to practice an instrument I want to learn.

Xavier Rudd's music was the first point of contact. Since then my sister and I have been gaining an interest in not only australian indigenous music but the music of all the pacific islands. The didj in particular has a very ethereal feel to it - and (played well) can transport a listener to another time and place.

I absolutely love their unique sound and furthermore have grown fond of their iconic value in Aboriginal Culture. The oxymoronic complexities within the simplicity of this instrument is where its beauty comes from; and such a simplicity brings one closer to nature.

Raghav from New Zealand

I have a passion for learning different world instruments The thing I most like about this instrument is that its a powerful and at the same time exotic form of art which evolved 50 000 years ago. Every variety of sound has an impact on nature. At present I have a collection from from India Nepal Sri Lanka and other parts of middle asia. of few acoustics like (banjo mouth organ Harmonium sitar sarangi and "Been"- played to charm snakes for showbiz and research by amateurs. Amazing isn't it when we already know that snakes are deaf they catch vibration of happiness or sadness in 'Been acoustica'. Both instruments Didgeridoos & Been can be traced to the same age of evolution.The Aborigines inhabitants of the continent for over 50 000 years have a distinctive musical culture. Aboriginal creation myth holds that singing was the means of the world's creation. By the late 19th century most Aboriginals had been forced into white communities and many tribes were massively depopulated. But in the 1970s Aborigines reasserted their cultural traditions and began fusing western reggae and rock with traditional instrumentation and using music as a means of political protest.

Randel from USA

I enjoy the sound as it has a calming effect on me. I would like to learn to play one.

Wesley Bullock from USA

I was introduced to didgeridoos in 1999 and I've been playing almost daily since then. For the last several years I've been featured as a didgeridoo soloist for a touring Broadway show called Blast!. We started in London performed on Broadway for 6 months did a two-and-a-half year national tour and have spent the last four summers in Japan. This year we are performing Blast 2: MIX (a spinoff) and I'm once again featured on didge. I've been teaching new cast members to play since 2002 and I love it. Personally I enjoy the simplicity and depth of the didge. I can quickly tap into my roots as a being connected to the earth and my past
