    Yeah that's Earth Cry with William Barton, a Wannyi, Lardil and Kalkadunga elder and contemporary didjeridu player.

    Sean O'Boyle composed a real concerto for the instrument. It's interesting, but I prefer Sculthorpe's concertante work.

    Many years ago there was a didgeridoo busker in Sheffield city centre. Not unpleasant.

    I very much like the sound of the didgeridoo. I tend to be old-fashioned in my tastes and thus I mostly prefer music with a good tune. But if we're going to do soundscapes, there is hardly an instrument better suited to it than didgeridoo, in my ever so humble opinion. :-)
