These Eucalypt White Ant Didgs are hand crafted by Aborigines who live in Queensland, Australia. The traditional earth toned artwork on this particular range of Didgeridoos is very detailed and representative of the native colors of Outback Australia. The wood is heavy and strong and generates deep, earthy tones that will delight even the most talented Didg players. The didgeridoo is a musical instrument used by the Aborigines for dance, song and ceremonies. Each didgeridoo player has their own style and sound. A didgeridoo is usually 3' 3" to 3' 11" (1 - 1.2m) in length and is hollow right through. When making a didgeridoo the center is shaped first and the outside is stripped off to suit the hollow center. The outside is smoothed off and painted with clays and ochre. Sometimes a story is told in the paintings. Playing the didgeridoo: place you lips firmly on the mouthpiece and make a loose raspberry sound and add some low noises from the throat to beef up the sound. The circular breathing is the most difficult part of playing the didgeridoo. Basically, you have to keep a constant noise coming out of the didgeridoo. Whilst taking a quick breath in through your nose you have to use your cheek muscles to blow air out your mouth. Practice by blowing continuous bubbles into a glass of water with a straw!
