Didgeridoo Down Under ABOUT THE ARTIST: Didgeridoo Down Under is one of the most popular K-12 “edu-tainment” programs in the U.S. We specialize in weaving Australia-themed cultural arts, cross-curriculum, character education, motivational speaking and audience participation into high-energy shows and workshops for all ages. Since 2003, we have presented more than 5,000 programs at schools and other venues nationwide … but we’re based out of North Carolina!
ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCES: Didgeridoo Down Under Show: Australian Music - Culture - Character Building! The DDU Show combines Australian music, culture, art, science, literacy development, puppetry, comedy, character building, anti-bullying and audience participation. The didgeridoo, usually a hollowed-out tree trunk, 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 highly entertaining -- great for all ages! DDU Mission: further appreciation of world music and art ... promote tolerance and respect for all people and cultures ... ignite excitement about reading and exploring ... encourage environmental protection ... help end bullying in schools ... deliver superb fun!
