Didgeridoo Dreamtime

Didgeridoo

One would normally not associate Mallorca with didgeridoos, dreamtime or songlines. But imagine my surprise when I read that this weekend just gone, the IV. Encuentro Didgeridoo Mallorca took place in Palma de Mallorca. Sadly, I picked up the information too late to attend the event myself, as so often happens here in Mallorca, and I could not tell you about it in good time. We’ll just have to wait another year for the next encounter.

Surprisingly, there seems to be quite a large community of didgeridoo players, here in Mallorca. Hernán Livolsi, the Argentinian initiator of the Mallorcan Didgeridoo Encuentro, already in its fourth year, seems to be making his instruments himself, judging from his page on Myspace ( I think I’ve heard him perform in Palma once before and I must say, he plays pretty good). I’ll upload a video of a street performance of his in case you should like to listen to him playing this Australian instrument.

Some years ago, I met another guy, then living in Ca’s Concos d’es Cavaller, who made his own didgeridoos out of the trunks of the Agave cactus. He was also playing the instrument quite well, and the sound of his didge sounded pretty genuine as well. I now seem to have forgotten his name.
