I've always thought they were really interesting sounding instruments. The tribal scene in the first Crocodile Dundee was always one of my all time top scenes in any film when I was younger... it wasn't until recently that I watched the film again after many years that the sounds they were playing throughout the movie and most prominently that scene that I really began to appreciate them. I now have 2 didgeridoos that I play regularly!

Deanna from USA

My father who dies when I was sixteen was very into the Australian culture and studied as much a she could in preparation for a trip that he never made. When my son was born I chose this aspect of my father to pass on to my son -even used "Waltzing Matilda" as his lullaby. My son grew up on Mem Fox and the Crodile Hunter. I for my part love playing exotic instrument esp. percussion. My son and step-dad also love ethnic music -my step-dad even clogs square-dances and round-dances! The didgeridoo music is something we all enjoy.

Kris Stewart from United Kingdom

I was first introduced to didgeridoo's when I was 15 when visiting friends in australia. We entered a shop with amazing paintings and long hollow pieces of wood they had the most beautiful designs a had ever seen. the shop keeper came up to me and asked if I would like a go I shifted nervously as I was shy. The man lifted a didgeridoo came over to me and said blow your lips and make them vibrate I just sorta looked at him and laughed but he smiled and said he wasn't kidding. I did as he said then he was pleased and he played a simple drone into the didgeridoo and I was really impressed. he handed it over to me and I tried it I blew into it and just felt overwhelmed I could hear this amazing noise which I was making it really shocked me that I could do it. the man was impressed saying rarely people on there first try ever get it right so I was all chuffed with myself. at this point was the moment I became interested in playing the didge!!!

Firstly their sound and history. Secondly their health effects. I came to the site getting info for someone who asked about frequency info for sound of didge for Frex discussion group. My son has a didgeridoo but not authentic which he used to play - when he put a plastic pipe on the end wow! Another class of sound again. Back in 80s I recall playing didge music on 6UVS FM radio in Perth but it was not common. Now it is great used widely.
