  1. Strangely those ice instruments don’t leave me cold. I think you have to be stoned for the second though! That circular breathing for the didgeridoo is not possible. They have a secreted airline!

    1. Ha ha!! Actually, I have met a Dutch man here in SA who was taught to play the didgeridoo by the aboriginals. He now teaches circular breathing to others. If he can’t get you to make a sound by the end of the first lesson he will give you an authentic didgeridoo. He has not needed to do that yet.

  2. What a lovely post.
    The sound of that ice violin sent shivers through me. It had some indefinable extra quality to it. The girl playing the stone xylophone infected me with her joy in the instrument. As for didges – they awaken the ancient magic of nature.

      1. They do. My lovely friend Hedley, who I work with at Oxfam, wrote a song for his Australian friend, Fingers Mitchell Cullen, who I believe is making a name for himself with his combination of didgeridoo, guitar and singing. He’s a contemporary singer. Have you heard of him?

      2. See – that’s what I used to do, but I’m untidy in some ways, and although I have several notebook for different purposes, I kept using scraps of paper, then losing them

  3. indeed humans have found a way to make music out of anything. The examples you posted and I’ve seen the steel bands who make their instruments from steel garbage pails and people using plastic containers as drums and rubber bands as a mouth string instrument. Where there is a will there is a way…….
