Didgeridoo Music that Tells Stories

Posted: Friday, April 24, 2009 in Articles, News, Other, Uncategorized by Posted by

Hi,

I am introducing indigenous culture through aboriginal story-telling, art and music to teachers as part of Korean Ministry of Education English In-service Training.

I have just purchased one of your plastic didges to do some demo work with the teachers and was wondering if you could suggest appropriate didge music (not techno version) for my trainees. As I am sure they will be interested in my recommendation.

As far as story telling goes I love Ash Dargans Territory http://www.didgeridoobreath.com/product_p/cd-310.htm Ash is an Aboriginal Didgeridoo player and this CD tells 13 different stories from the Northern Territory. Each little story has a short description on the inside cover to help set the scene for the listener. I love it. It does have other instruments playing, all played by ash, a little percussion and flute, but the Didgeridoo is by far the dominant instrument, a wonderful album. You can hear the crocodile, see through the eye of the eagle, tread carefully around sacred ground and much more.

The other choice which is solo Didgeridoo without any other instruments is the Ash Dirt and Dust album. Not telling any distinct story but powerful raw didgeridoo playing, this is a very popular album for anybody chasing just the range of amazing sounds of the Didgeridoo. http://www.didgeridoobreath.com/product_p/cd-ashdustdirt.htm

Either of these albums I would highly recommend.
