Master didjeridoo players Rob Thomas and Tanya Gerard of Australia have played the didjeridoo since the mid 1980’s. They have performed together as Inlakesh since 1990 – a group that combines the didjeridoo with Tibetan horns, gongs, tribal percussion and location recordings from around the globe to create purely acoustical trance music. Rob and Tanya have taught several thousand people how to play the didjeridoo over the years and have put together the simplest, best techniques for learning the didjeridoo on this video.
