Synopsis

Product Description
The white & the black didge-masters from 'down-under' unite in a never heard collaboration that blows your mind away. No studio tricks - all recorded live and alive. Funky rhythms performed by true characters with fun and spirit. ***
Remote echoes of the Australian landscape from two masters that present ancient techniques in long swells and sway back and forth in percussive tonal bursts. There is an un-matched standard of focus one must attain to achieve the trance like nature of the sounds produced by the ancient didgeridoo. *** The two masters: Aboriginal Native, ALAN DARGIN (passed on in 2008) and sixth generation Australian GARY THOMAS come together on DidgeriDuo to present a soundscape that is representative of their live performance which has graced the stages of some of the finest World music festivals and concert halls around the globe. DidgeriDuo uses virtually no other instrumentation with the exception of a few percussive sticks to carry the tones and energy of their didgeridoos to the mind's eye where the listener may travel to the Australian continent and through listening see the cultural elements of the music come to life. ***
 

CD Reviews

Didgeridoo au naturale
Desert Rat | Black Rock | 10/02/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of my favorite didge albums. There is no discernable accompanyment in this album and the didge is front and center. These are virtuoso performances from Thomas and Dargin. When you learn a little about how a didge is played an album like this is absolutely spellbinding. You can read about what "circular breathing" is - but take a minute to try it just for fun. Chances are - you can't. THEN listen to this and just sit back in awe of the profound dedication it takes to create something like this.
