Didgeridoo | Definition


A Didgeridoo is an Australian aboriginal wind instrument, made out of a hollowed tree trunk and produces a low drone sound. The Didgeridoo is a way for the aboriginal people to tell stories through song and the music of the Didgeridoo. When played correctly, through slow vibrations of the lips, the Didgeridoo can be quite melodic with a variation of sounds which can even mimic bird calls.
