"Well it has been made and played by Aboriginal people for thousands of years now."
IT IS COMING FROM THE HEART
IT IS COMING FROM THE LAND
IT IS A SOUL INSTRUMENT
YOU FEEL IT….
IT IS THE SOUND OF MOTHER EARTH
ABORIGINAL PEOPLE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
"As with imagemaking, Aboriginal music also unites consciousness with the invisible laws and energy patterns of nature. Aboriginal art is perhaps most accurately described as a method for gaining knowledge of nature and its invisible Dreaming. An example is the playing of the didjeridoo, a long wooden flute, perhaps the oldest musical instrument on earth.

The Aborigine would also listen to the sounds of wind, thunder, trees creaking, and water running. The essences of all these sounds were played with as much accuracy as possible within the droning sound of the didjereedoo. For the Aborigine, the observation of nature immediately requires a state of empathy, which leads to am imitative expression."
