Story Behind the Art:
The artisans of Bali, Indonesia are skilled masters in the art of carving wood and ceramics. Both are unique talents that have been handed down through the generations. They're perfectionists at what they do and love to share their gift for all to enjoy!
The artisans that have created these instruments are specialists in both the design detail and musicality. Each one is hand crafted with intricate designs and patterns to give each instrument a unique look and feel.
Believed to be world's oldest instrument, the didgeridoo appeals to all types of musicians around the world. The extended length of the instrument creates an incredible low, bellowing horn tone.
The instrument is played by placing your lips around the top, creating an airlock. The didgeridoo resembles the tuba in this aspect. Blow smoothly and evenly while vibrating your lips to make the droning sound using a special breathing technique called circular breathing. This requires a person to breathe in through the nose while expelling air out of the mouth using the tongue and cheeks. By using circular breathing, a skilled didgeridoo player can fill up his lungs and hold a note for a very long time and create melodies with various tongue and mouth techniques.
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.
