Excerpts from Wikipedia — Didgeridoo:

A termite-bored didgeridoo has an irregular shape that, overall, usually increases in diameter towards the lower end. This shape means that its resonances occur at frequencies that are not harmonically spaced in frequency even though the vibration produced by the player's lips has harmonics. 

Sufficiently strong resonances of the vocal tract can strongly influence the timbre of the instrument. At some frequencies, whose values depend on the position of the player's tongue, resonances of the vocal tract inhibit the oscillatory flow of air into the instrument.  These variations during the inhalation and exhalation phases of circular breathing, give the instrument its readily recognizable sound.



 
Oh, that's why I couldn't play the didgeridoo when I was In Australia.  I didn't get the "oscillatory flow" correct and my circular breathing was all out of whack.  I'll just stick with the guitar.  I just wish I could play one, and so do my friends.

I wonder what a Tuvan throat singer like Ondar would sound like on a didgeridoo



This is groovy...  love it...


Love this... I have the CD at home. Love the comments too... it's why RP is so cool

Well, at least the comments are good...

Cliche Quiz…

Didgerydoo is to World Music as Alto Sax is to _______

a. Smooth Jazz


This is a didjeridon't.

This is really cool!
Hmm. On this showing, guitar and didgerydoo go together like a horse and cabbage. Nice effort, but I don't think it works.
Didjeriyes :sunny:
Anybody ever see the movie "The Coca-Cola Kid" with Eric Roberts? In it the members of Split Enz come up with a down under version of a Coke jingle that includes a dijderidoo (sp?)--and it's AWESOME!

I had to look it up to see what it was. Learn something new everyday!
This is cool Bill, a nice mix.

I really have the craving for a blooming onion now...
First impression was I didn't like it.....and now I'm :dancingbanana_2:
MUZAK-A-DOO :sleep: :sleep:
Would have been better had the long, continuous release of flatulence been left out.
Rock-a-Doo!
:dancingbanana:
I really liked it. It doesn't get boring for a second. It's really nice to listen to. Well done!
Beautiful music
Great vibe!
Digirati enjoy the didgeridoo.... :stupid:
Nice tune!

LMAO. Spookiest instrument on the face of the planet, and that's just fine with me.
I always thought some group from the sixties should have incorporated it into a psychedelic classic. But what did I know then, I was only in Jr. High. Hey! Maybe I could have been the next Phil Spector. Naw. I could have never killed a woman.
Is it the .,.. "Afternoon Show" on CBC public radio in British Columbia that plays this as their theme song? Or used to? :think:

I think that the reference was to a Jew's Harp, a civil war era folk instrument.
This is cool.

His name Rolf too? Not Rolf Harris by any chance? :biggrin:

I agree the didgeridoo gets a little tiresome after a while....throw in a bull-roarer, then we're talking!
Catchy. Loving the variety. :clap:
My initial thought when it first started was "HEY EVERYBODY CHECK IT OUT! IT'S A DIDGEDEROO!" Never really got into the hoopla about the instrument. The rest of the tune is ok.

Or, if you google didgeridoo together with, say, funk, you'll realize that maybe the world needs fewer. :ask:        :doh:

I bought a didgeridoo at an art fair after hearing this album. I couldn't get a sound out of it. My son, who plays the trumpet, can blow it like Miles Davis. Go Figure. BTW, this is the best of Baka. Baka Beyond is also cool though more Afro-Celt.
nice for working to. which, um, is what i ought to be doing. i like the mix of instruments!

Digeridork. This is the kind of unusual and excellent music that places RP above all of the other online radio stations. Even if you don't care for this tune, you gotta admit you're not going to find such a variety anywhere else. Thanks, RP.
VERY cool... 8)
Thanks for the musical energy--I need it right now!
i need my guitar ;-o
most excellent.
Digeridon't. Please.
Lovely, if a bit repetitive. what is it with folks who make a great groove, but feel they have to repeat it verbatim over and over again?
Cool song. Super lame name for a Aussie band, though. It's like a Canadian band calling themselves "Maple Syrup" or something.
Can someone tell me where I can get my hands on this CD? It seems to be out of print, but I love it so. Upload more from Air Play!
Perfect song for the crappy weather we're having in NYC today :)
Sounds like a bit of Aussie Penguin Cafe Orchestra
Gotta love the didgeradoo! yay! :music:
the world needs more didgeridoos!
