Yidaki

An iconic Australian instrument

About this Experience

A fun-filled and comprehensive introduction to a musical instrument unique to Aboriginal culture: the didgeridoo!

THE EXPERIENCE

Globally recognised as the musical instrument that produces ‘the sound of Australia’, the didgeridoo has long been a traditional musical instrument in the Top End. Its place of origin is North East Arnhem Land, where it is called yidaki.

After introducing the yidaki with a live demonstration, our educator will take your students on a virtual journey to Arnhem Land, to witness the crafting of the instrument by its traditional owners & its use during ceremony.

 

Whilst learning about the cultural significance of this fascinating instrument students will also learn about its global popularity and have plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

We supply: A range of authentic yidaki, large pull up banners, media files for ICT presentation and question sheets for the students.

We need: ICT facility and suitable venue for the audience size (eg. classroom or auditorium). Microphone and amplification for larger venues.

Session time: 60 minutes.

Cost:  $550 + GST per class.

Educator/s:  Ganga Giri or Sean Candy
