UK LONDON DIDGERIDOO SHOP – What is a Didgeridoo?

The beginner may wish to know a little more about the didgeridoo, where it comes from, who makes them, and what is an authentic Aboriginal instrument? The didgeridoo traditionally comes from the Northern Territory of Arnhem Land, Australia. In the NE Arnhem Land it is referred to as the ‘Yidaki’ and in Western Arnhem Land it is called the ‘Mago.’ Out of all the didgeridoos sold throughout the world, just 1% are crafted and painted in the traditional way by an Indigenous Aboriginal. If you are looking to buy or give a didgeridoo as a gift, try to avoid a teak or bamboo copy which robs the Indigenous Aborigines of their cultural heritage; the consumer can make a difference and help the traditional Aboriginal crafts people by choosing to by an authentic traditional instrument from a reputable source. In this way your purchase will help the Indigenous Aboriginal rather than taking from them. However, if you are a beginner and are hesitant about the intial investment of buying an authentic quality instrument, we suggest you first buy a piece of plastic pipe to practice on rather than buying a teak or bamboo copy. We can supply a beginner’s platic pipe for this purpose (or you can make your own) and we refund the small cost when you buy an authentic traditional didgeridoo. Please visit our Didgeridoo Shop in London UK www.aboriginalarts.co.uk www.aboriginalarts.co.uk
