Didgeridoo Down Under Show

“One of the best shows that I have had in my 35 years as a children’s librarian!” – JoAnne Powell, Librarian, Peabody Institute Library of Danvers, MA

DDU is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, puppetry, comedy, character building, storytelling and audience participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun – perfect for kids and families.

DDU is perfect for 2021 SRP “Tails & Tales” …

Aussie Funk Jam Workshop

”I usually don’t stay in for the whole program, but I couldn’t leave today. I was spellbound!” – Alice Grace, Youth Librarian, Orange County South Trail Library, FL

The Aussie Funk Jam is a completely interactive and hands-on workshop. Participants learn how to play the didgeridoo, including vocalizing, creating simple rhythms and more, with our beginner instruments. It’s cool, funky and unique – Ideal for teens and tweens, but OK for ages 8 and up.

 
 

Music & More from Down Under and Beyond
Music & More takes the audience on a musical journey to Australia and beyond, as the performer plays an assortment of didgeridoos and percussion instruments. Our performers play a modern style, mixing fast-paced rhythms with relaxing soundscapes and organic sound effects. This program is best for adults, but OK for kids with parental accompaniment.
