Didgeridoo Down Under: Music and More!
Didgeridoo Down Under (DDU) is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, science, puppetry, comedy, character building, and audience participation. The didgeridoo, usually a hollow tree trunk, has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years and is known for it’s otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational, and highly entertaining. You’ll learn about Aussie culture, animals, and more, all while moving and grooving to the pulsing rhythms of the “didge!”
Following the DDU program will be an Aussie Funk Jam Didgeridoo Workshop (ages 8 and up). This is a one-of-a-kind musical and cultural experience. The didgeridoo is an Australian Aboriginal instrument with a funky, fresh sound thats as exotic as its name. In this upbeat workshop, participants learn to play the “didge” — including animal sounds and simple rhythms — with our beginner PVC didgeridoos. Come experience a naturally exhilarating, buzzing sensation! Registration is required for the workshop by calling 828-884-3151 ext. 3 or by stopping by the Youth Services Desk.
