Friends of the Library Sponsored Events

Didgeridoo Down Under

Didgeridoo Down Under

The Didgeridoo Down Under Show is an energetic fusion of Australian music, culture, puppetry, comedy, character building, storytelling and audience movement / 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.
