Title: Didjeribone Student range: Years P - 12
"Adrian is so warm with the students. They loved him." "It was really cool how he could make all of those sounds by himself." "The way he combines technology with his didj is amazing."
Tag line/introduction: Hear unique songs and soundscapes played with a didjeribone: a didgeridu-trombone fusion.
Product description: International performer Tjupurru, Adrian Fabila, is a one man music machine. He plays the didjeribone, a unique slide didjeridu; named the didjeribone because it can slide through different notes and tones. Combined with his 'face bass' -- a tiny, mouth-based gadget - and a set of guitar pedals, this one-man band sequences live samples and electronic effects to transport the traditional into contemporary culture.
About the artists: Tjupurru is a proud descendant of the Djabera Djabera tribe of the West Australia Kimberleys. He has a national and international profile and recently performed as a soloist at the Sydney Opera House.
Devised and presented by Adrian Fabila (aka Tjupurru).
