One Hollow Branch and 1,500 Years of Sound

One of our favorite instruments at All Around This World is the didgeridoo, an instrument identified most with the indigenous peoples of Australia and rumored to have been in existence for roundabout 1,500. The best didgeridoos are made from eucalyptus branches hollowed by termites and can be as long as nine feet long. NINE FEET! I don’t know how long the didgeridoo Larry Gurruwiwi plays this video is, but we can all agree that it sounds great.
