THE FANTASTIC DIDGERIDOO

When I was very young I heard some musicians playing Australian music on the television and I was amazed to here the sounds that came out of this very long pole instument. Probably it was Rolf Harris doing his thing but I can't remember. All I know is that this music is thousands of years old and has stood the test of time as it is still popular today and is a huge tourist attraction in Australia. The history of the Aboriginal people is at least 40,000 years old and they do not get the recognition that they deserve from the newcomers who call themselves Australians, but this is another story.  This music is not everyone's cup of tea but well worth a listen.

  25. i see people play the didgeridoo down at the beach near me sometimes, in my opinion it's a funny instrument, but it's less annoying than bag pipes so its ok in my book.
