Did you ever do a didgeridoo? Like the indigenous natives of Uluru? That's in Northern Australia, or "Oz" to you! Then meet Phil Shiva Jones, Australian musician; the didgeridoo is his native tradition. In his capacity as a music clinician, he'll teach it to you if you've got the ambition.You can use eucalyptus, or sometimes bamboo (the former will smell like koala bear poo), as long as your branch has been eaten through, by the termites that have nothing better to do. With some carving and shaping and craftsmanship, too: That's how you make a didgeridoo! From 2 to 4:30, the people will meet at 1717 Wyandotte. Kansas Siddhi Yoga Studio is your ringside seat to study this Australian musical feat. You'll learn "circular breathing" for deep meditation; the didgeridoo uses this respiration, for continuous drones of primordial vibration. Call this number for more didgeridoo information: 866-222-9555.
