Two DVD's in one! "Making and playing the Didgeridoo" and "Bush Tucker, Bush Art, Bush Life" by David Hudson.
In "Making and playing the Didgeridoo," David takes us to the exotic Cape York in Australia's far north (Queensland) to show us how he selects a tree, strips and paints the didgeridoo. He then presents his virtuoso method of playing the oldest wind instrument in the world. An entertaining and informative look at this central part of Aboriginal culture. Running Time: 24 minutes.
In "Bush Tucker, Bush Art, Bush Life," David says, "Welcome to my country...Jowelbinna, Cape York. The Land of the Guguyalangi - my Grandmother's people. This is a stunning area full of Ancient Rock Art and Traditional Dreaming Sites. Join me as I visit these areas, taking a look at traditional implements such as Boomerangs and the Didgeridoo and how to make a spear in the method used by my ancestors. Along the way there's some fascinating and delicious Bush Tucker to eat and a Permaculture Bushfire made in the traditional method of rubbing two sticks together. It's a slice of life in the oldest living culture in the world. Running Time: 32 minutes.
