Their intuitive and unique music is inspired by their extensive travels busking internationally, this creates an original and emotive style and groove. Their music is a unique blend of polarities merging, like the sun and moon, cacophony and silence, they are both urban and wild in their essence.

3. ONDREJ SMEYKAL
Friday, 28th of March: 7pm – 10pm

A one-man Didgeridoo orchestra is perhaps the best way of describing the extraordinary music of phenomenal Didgeridoo player Ondrej Smeykal . His highly original style of play is the result of a life completely devoted to his instrument. For well over a decade and with ever increasing intensity, Ondrej has been developing and redefining his own unique approach to the Didgeridoo. His predominant use of unusually long Didges and “extensions” of up to 4 metres in length, enable him to play incredibly deep tones and to produce a much wider range of sounds and overtones than are possible on regular didgeridoos. Each composition, or song, as he refers to it, is very different in style, ranging from break-beat and organic Didgeridoo techno, to trance, ambient and anywhere in between.

4. JEREMY CLOAKE – Interactive Yidaki Seminar
Thursday 3rd of April: 7pm – 8pm

This is an informal seminar that is open to everyone who has an interest in the yidaki. Jeremy will share some of his knowledge and experiences from working in North East Arnhemland since 2000. Yidaki making and playing techniques will be discussed as well as various styles of yidaki. Towards the end of the seminar people will be given the opportunity to try an instrument with Jeremy’s guidance and there will be Q and A. People of all ages are welcome. The duration of the seminar is usually around an hour.

5. JEREMY CLOAKE YIDAKI WORKSHOPS
Saturday, 5th of April (Introductory Class) 11am – 4pm
Sunday, 6th of April (Advanced Class) 11am – 4pm

Introductory Class
If you have ever felt that the Yolngu playing techniques from North East Arnhem Land  are too difficult to manage, then this is the workshop for you! In this workshop Jeremy breaks these playing styles down into simple and easily learned individual sounds. During the workshop these sounds are practised and refined with many distinctions made regarding tongue position and movement, pressure control and use of the voice. Then they are put together into phrases that are repeated to become rhythms. Jeremy has been teaching this workshop internationally since 2001 and to this day still continues to refine his teaching methods and the content of his workshops. He is a professionally trained teacher and takes pride in delivering accurate and relevant information that is delivered in a straightforward way. This workshop is usually between 3 and 4 hours depending on the size of the group.

Advanced Class
This workshop continues on further with information from the introductory yidaki workshop, so it is necessary to have done it first. The phrases learnt in the introductory workshop are practised and refined then developed. Many different phrases are taught in a way which simplifies their complexity. Participants of this workshop will gain an excellent understanding on the principles of yidaki playing, together with composition skills and playing dexterity. Jeremy has been teaching this workshop internationally since 2001 and to this day still continues to refine his teaching methods and the content of his workshops. He is a professionally trained teacher and takes pride in delivering accurate and relevant information that is delivered in a straightforward way. This workshop is usually around 3 hours, depending on the size of the group.
