The idea is simple... Many Breaths, One Instrument.

In this playlist you can hear the different international flavours of the didgeridoo, from home-grown Australian talent to some of the best international exponents of the instrument - all playing the same instrument.

The Blue Bamboo is an old 1950s didgeridoo made from bamboo, plainly decorated with a coat of red ochre, and then over-painted with either blue house paint or Ricketts Blue. The inside of the instrument is similarly painted.

It originates from the north-west portion of the Northern Territory, Australia, where Bambusa arnhemica is endemic and where didgeridoos were traditionally made from this species. There is old hardened sugarbag beeswax on the mouthpiece with more recent reinforcements.

Mouthpiece opening is about 33 mm diameter of roughly circular shape, sugarbag addition by recent players has made it closer to 30 mm. Bell end diameter is 9 cm. The total length of the Blue Bamboo is 129 cm and it tips the scales at a lightweight 1.5 kg. Fundamental key F; 1st overtone note G.

15 players of different styles are currently showcased in this playlist.
Larry is the son of the great Djalu Gurruwiwi. He is a keen Aussie-rules footballer, accomplished and powerful didgeridoo player, and a family man. Married with 3 children, he enjoys keeping physically active and sometimes accompanies his father on didgeridoo harvesting trips.
