Overview

In Australian Aboriginal culture, Woolunda is the mythical place of life after death. Our guide on this visit is David Hudson, "Pied Piper" of the trance-inducing didgeridoo. Hudson, a member of the Tjapukai tribe of northern Queensland, plays instruments of his own making, including the traditional didgeridoo, and the "slide didgibone," a didgeridoo made from PVC pipe of two different sizes, one fitting inside the other. When pushed in or pulled out, it creates an effect on the musical voicing similar to a slide trombone....The deep primal droning sound provides a platform for other sounds induced by the player; animal sounds, spirit-like voicings, and explosive/percussive effects. A few of the cuts also utilize an electronically-created "reverberant performance space," leading the imagination into deep enveloping caves of sound. These ten original solos range from traditional sounding pieces to cuts like "Didgerijig," a fun composition using a jig-like rhythmical structure. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
