While visiting the Riverside Markets in Laurieton, on the Mid North Coast of NSW, I followed the music and found this bloke. He was blowing up a storm on this instrument, probably based on our Aboriginal didgeridoo, fashioned from a tree whose inside is eaten out by termites! They create an amazing variety of haunting sounds by being played somewhat like a brass instrument with a huge mouthpiece.
There were all manner of electronic doodads attached to this most unique instrument, including accompaniment on a keyboard! This bloke had also brought his own fan with him, but he’d have quite a few others!
OK: I’ll give him a free plug: He’s Dave Johnson and the banner is “Didgera”
You may want to look him up & check out his music.
You can also listen to some traditional Australian didgeridoo on the video John 44 has kindly added.
