Austrailian Didgeridoo

By boskodude  
I met this man while at the Mayfest in Tulsa this summer. He makes most of these wind instruments himself. Orginally, he says that these long wooden tubes grow in the everglade types of water environments in Austrailia and that Ants or Termites hollow out the long tubes for their own nesting. They require alot of wind to play them and much diaphram control. But it's a very different instrument and sound to enjoy. The vast number of shells attache to his legs he simply moves his legs to the rythm he chooses during a song performance. Quite primitive which makes it very Earthy...!

Either that or he's a morris dancer with a very big stick!

Very nice portrait, well taken.

I'd have like to see a taller shot, to show the full size of his instrument...ooh-er!!

You also chopped off the bottom of his foot.

Good clear shot though, & you can see all the shells & his bits & bobs.
