Didgeridoo

Hi, I am Gemma and I am one of the Fire Carriers.at St Charles Borromeo. I am going to talk about the didgeridoo.

The didgeridoo is one of the oldest instruments on earth.

Aborigines used to listen to the sounds of nature such as footsteps, trees creaking or the sound of the wind and then imitate it closely with the didgeridoo.

Did you know that women can’t play the didgeridoo? This is because Aborigines believe that it is taboo for women even touch a didgeridoo.

Here is a YouTube clip that lets you hear what didgeridoos sound like.
