The Didgeridoo is also known as Yidaki, name used by the Australian aborigines from the region of Kimberly.
Traditionally, the paintings represent entities and symbols in their ancestors’ history.
The experienced performers’ technique is very interesting: they breath in quickly through their noses and then blow nonstop, getting a circular breathing which produces a penetrating and continuous sound.
Myths and Tales:
A long, long time ago, according to what old Australian aborigines tell, three men who were travelling around the land of Arnhem during a very cold night decided to stop to make fire and spend the night out in the open.
They found a big eucalyptus tree and pulled up some roots. One of them was hollow and when they looked inside they realized it was full of termites.
They emptied the root carefully. When one of them blew from one end to get the last termites out, he was surprised by a startling, deep and pure sound.
