Didgeridoo workshop (beginner/intermediate) – learn or develop the basic practice techniques of this traditional instrument from the aboriginal tribes of Australia.


Considered the oldest instrument in the world, it is supposed to have been initially used to communicate between tribes, and the traditional instruments designated Yidaki have been introduced into ritual ceremonies since immemorial times, by the Yolngul people. In the 70's, the instrument crossed the borders of Australia, giving rise to a new stream of musical approaches.

It is a breath instrument with a single base note, enriched by the exploitation of various sound capacities, imposed by the conscious use of the respiratory and muscular apparatus. Its most characteristic technique consists of circular breathing, which allows a continuous flow of air to be maintained so as not to interrupt the sound while breathing.

The workshop consists of a theoretical introduction on the origin of the Didgeridoo, followed by an essentially practical component dedicated to the development of the 5 basic techniques, using rhythmic and respiratory exercises. There is still time to address the concepts of vibrational therapy and circular breathing.
