Luis Figueira from Portugal The sound is very cool and I use it in my musical compositions. I feel that is the closest sound to the "silence". It's difficult to explain, but if you listen the silence, you can hear the sound of the universe, and it is closest to the sound of the didgeridoo.
Anonymous I love music (i also play guitar, percussion, and the harmonica). Also, the didj really has some healing and meditative properties that are great. And, around where I live no one else plays so its very unique. Lastly, I love the earthiness and naturalness of it in comparison to other instruments.

Matt from United Kingdom I just like to play with sound and can do it more directly with a didge than anything else. Sometimes also to calm myself down if I'm incredibly stressed.
Matt Meers from USA I play for my total well being. Playing improves my lung capacity for overall general health. I play to expand my creativity as a musician and as a visual artist. I do my best mental explorations while playing. Emotionally the tones created soothe every sense, sounding out my day, replacing the energy that was taken out of me. I play to restore my humanity. I appreciate the immense expanse of time in which this instrument has been a part of our collective history. I read once that the Creator used the yidaki to sound the world into form, it certainly helps create a new form of being for me.
