czech professional didgeridoo player
A one-man Didgeridoo orchestra is perhaps the best way of describing the extraordinary music of phenomenal Didgeridoo player Ondrej Smeykal. His highly original style of play is the result of a life completely devoted to his instrument. For well over a decade and with ever increasing intensity, Ondrej has been developing and redefining his own unique approach to the Didgeridoo. His predominant use of unusually long Didges and “extensions” of up to 4 metres in length, enable him to play incredibly deep tones and to produce a much wider range of sounds and overtones than are possible on regular didgeridoos. Each composition, or song, as he refers to it, is very different in style, ranging from break-beat and organic Didgeridoo techno, to trance, ambient and anywhere in between.
17 March 2016Didges to buy
Update for anyone interested in buying an original eucalyptus didge from Australia: You can still buy some eucalyptus didges from my personal collection. They are instruments which I used in various periods or they were about to be used
you know. In any ways they are instruments either from traditional native craftsmen or nowadays Australian craftsmen. I will be pleased to respond to your questions. Cheers to the drone!
