Solo concert for didgeridoo and percussion

Phil Drummy

The solo concert for didgeridoo and percussion, performed by the australian musician Phil Drummy, provides a unique opportunity to hear the musical languages of Australia's most widely recognized instrument.
Every region in that continent possesses its own musical form and hence the sounds, rhythms and accompaniment of the didgeridoo (known as the "yidaki" to the Yolngu people of north-east Arnhem Land) vary accordingly.

This concert provides an insight to this fascinating and dynamic sound-scape by a multi-instrumentalist who has collaborated and performed for many years with internationally acclaimed artists and many of Australia's most prominent indigenous musicians.
Drummy incorporates many of the less-known and heard traditional australian instruments in the performance with numerous percussive instruments from all around the world - both traditional and non.

Combined with the tasteful and sparse use of contempory technology, the result is an intrigueing musical style; the creation of warm and earthy layers of sound and the spontaneous formation of subtle and curious rhythmic patterns.

The concert programme moves through moments of hypnotic and haunting atmospheres to infectious and age-less dance rhythms, taking the listener on an unforgettable musical journey to experience the hidden spirit of Australia.
