The didgeridoo is a wind instrument native
to Australia. It was first played by the aborigines.
The didgeridoo is possibly the worldís oldest instrument!
The didgeridoo is traditionally made from Eucalyptus Trees.
The limbs and trunks are hollowed out, usually by termites.
The didgeridoo is usually painted, too. The didgeridoo produces
a low pitch sound. To get a sound you must vibrate
your lips. You must relax while doing this. When blowing,
do this very gently.
