It's one of the most distinctive and unusual sounds you'll ever hear. It goes my many names: dijeridu, ngarrriralkpwina, ilpirra, yirtakki, garnbak, yiraka, artawirr, gunbarrk, mako, martba, kurmur, ngaribi, paampu, bambu, and mandapul (yidaki). Some even think that the didgeridoo has great spiritual power. It's a one-note instrument which makes it seem deceptively simple to play. With its deep resonance and unmistakable character defining wobble this instrument can be played in an infinite number of ways.
I wanted to create this group to meet other didgerdioo players and to give anyone who wants to learn how to play an opportunity to. Every few weeks we'll get together at Northerly Island beach, bring our didj's, and make some fun music. It's not meant to be serious, it's meant to be relaxing. Supposedly playing the didj has quite a few health benefits: it helps with sleep apnea, relieves stress, controls breathing, and is very meditative.
And if you don't want to play but would just like to listen, meditate, or do yoga or whatever floats you boat then feel free to join us.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
