Got a surprise today at work… my didgeridoo and gear were delivered. It takes me longer to get a letter sent in this country than it did for my new didge to travel half way around the world. Thanks so much! The didge is perfect and the bag is beautiful. I can’t wait to get home and get stuck into the DVD.

I will let you know my progress.

Thanks again from a very happy customer

Mark Atkins Didgeridoo Workshop

October 30, 2009

A huge thanks to Mark Atkins who dropped into Didgeridoo Breath recently and ran a didgeridoo workshop for the lucky locals!

It was a fantastic workshop, featuring the almighty strengthening technique of playing didgeridoo, submersed in a bucket of water, continuously. I was sweating just watching!

For those of you who are not familiar with Mark, he is an incredibly powerful didgeridoo player. He visits Europe every summer to perform and also run didgeridoo workshops. Mark has some music available also.

Check out Mark’s MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/markyidakiatkins

Thanks again Mark, and catch you soon!

Hemp Didgeridoos are back… but not for long!

October 13, 2009

hemp didgeridoos at didgeridoo breath

Far out, was yesterday an exciting day!!

After over 12months of eager waiting and weekly phone calls, we finally had 12 special packages roll through the Didgeridoo Breath doors.

Looking at the shape and size of the packages, there was no mistake in guessing what they were…

HEMP DIDGERIDOOS!!!!

Yeeeee Haaaa!

Sanshi was bursting with excitement as he tore into the packages and unwrapped these beautiful didgeridoos.

They are like no other… Loud, Powerful, and Super Easy to play!

So after about 4hrs, a gathering crowd, and lots of jamming… 7 Hemp Didgeridoos have already been claimed! We can’t believe it. Out of the 12 that arrived, in less than a day, 5 are left!

For those of you who don’t know the Hemp Didgeridoo story, these instruments are extremely rare. In fact you can count on your fingers how many are left for sale in the world.

We will do our best to get the remaining 5 (at this moment in time) online very soon so you can check them out.

Take our advice, get yourself a Hemp Didgeridoo while you can!!!

UPDATE 24/10/09 – LAST HEMP DIDGERIDOO IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE…

John Butler Plays Happy Drum at Didgeridoo Breath

April 28, 2009

A friendly face returned to visit us today, a regular Fremantle visitor and friend of Didgeridoo Breath for a long time. John Butler dropped through to say hi and check out the latest offerings of Didgeridoo Breath.
It didn’t take long for John and Niki to discover the newest and most amazing instrument in town, the Happy Drum.
I was upstairs in the store and I heard two “Happy Drums” being played like I had never heard them before! Cool, fast, in tune, in time, with pulsing rhythmic percussive dynamics. I almost floated out of my chair down the stairs to check out who was responsible for these sweet, happening melodies.
It was a huge pleasure and surprise to see John laughing and grooving as he pumped out some awesome “Happy Drum” improv. Within seconds Niki (drummer) and Byron (bass) joined in and that was it, game on for the next half an hour. It was happy drum heaven!
Now, I know that a man as talented as our John could make baked bean cans sound impressive, but you have no idea how easily he jumped on and played these Happy Drums.
We asked John if he was happy for us to take a short video while he was playing, and he was, so here it is…

The recording sound quality is not great, but you can see the smiles and judge for yourself if these “Happy Drums” are fun to play!
We are always thankful when John drops in, today was a quiet day in Fremantle but it was a bright day for all of us as Sanshi joined in the jam with Didgeridoo and Jesse with the egg shakers…. Yep today we had a ball. Can you feel it, I am still smiling.
Thanks John, our doors are always open, we thank you for sharing your time and music with us, today is a day to remember. Thank you Niki and Byron for your smiles, conversation and laughs> Today your company was another blessing to all of the Didgeridoo Breath Family.
John Butler is an independent artist of Global recognition, but he is also a warm and humble man to be around. If you ever get the chance to see John Butler perform live, we recommend it HIGHLY. Take the opportunity to see this incredibly talented and grounded musical inspiration play.
John has taken two “Happy Drums” with him, whether they go on tour or are for his home, friends or family, doesn’t really matter, what does matter is that we all get behind this amazing young man in his efforts to share music and message to the globe.
Again thank you John, today has been a great day for all of us, bless you.

Didgeridoo Music that Tells Stories

April 24, 2009

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.

 

Reply….

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.

Tony
