People tend to think of the sound of the didjeridu as an odd buzzing sound, but this instrument is capable of a wide variety of sounds and textures. Nowhere is this more evident than on Seachnasaigh's Dharpa: Songs from the Dreamtime. The instrument chants on "Crocodile," dances at a rapid pace through "Love Chants," provides a bass line for "Gossip," and hums on "Dolphin." It shows an astounding dynamic range on "Tree" and "The Emu," and serves as a rhythmic pace setter throughout, accompanied at times by other percussion instruments and the human voice. On Dharpa the didjeridu's unique sound becomes enchanting, inviting the listener into another world. Who would have thought a single sound could have such an effect? --Genevieve Williams

"The vast majority of didgeridoo music readily available is a reinterpretation of aboriginal music. There are plenty CDs with disco-didgeridoo, New Age didgeridoo, techno-didgeridoo, Mozart-didgeridoo and so forth and so on. On the contrary, this CD features traditional didgeridoo music. The player is a nomadic musician who is also a sound healer instructed by actual aborigines. The music is very interesting and somewhat hypnotic. A praise goes to Jorge Alfano and Lyrichord music for bringing this music to us"
