The didgeridoo - is it an ancient artifact? A modern sculpture? The Australian Outback will seem a lot closer when you experience the extraordinary music made by this instrument. Its mournful, otherworldly sound conjures up primordial history. But amazingly, it can also sound joyful and contemporary, urging you to get up and dance!
Musician Rob Thomas of Didgeridoo Down Under will live-stream a performance that you won’t forget, mixing funky didgeridoo rhythms, percussion instruments, and relaxing soundscapes with both organic and electronic sound effects. Music and More from Down Under and Beyond is not just a musical event, it's a mesmerizing journey of sight, sound and imagination, immersing the audience in a stunning virtual landscape of Australian forests, deserts, oceans and distant galaxies.
Rob Thomas has been making and playing didgeridoos for almost 30 years. He has performed throughout the country, recorded several CDs, and produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX movie Sacred Planet. He collaborates on many of these projects with his wife and fellow DDU performer, Tanya Gerard.
