Playing The Didgeridoo
The Didgeridoo is played with continuously vibrating lips to produce the drone, while also using a special breathing technique known as circular breathing. This technique requires you to breathe in through your nose while simultaneously expelling stored air out of your mouth using both your tongue and cheeks. When using this technique, a skilled player can replenish the air in their lungs. With practice you can sustain a note for as long as you desire. There are existing recordings of modern players continuously playing for as long as 40 minutes or more. More modern techniques for playing this instrument are starting to show up in performances and lessons world wide.
