“ebben? ne andro lontah…ah…ah-CHOO!”

November 24, 2009

And, since we’re already spending a little time ‘down under’ this week – here’s a timely message for flu season from the South Australia Department of Health…set to Catalani’s iconic aria, “Ebben, ne andro lontana“.

Their message: get a flu shot.

My message: getting sick is inevitable. When it happens, don’t sneeze it on out into the big wide world like these actors.

Oy!…ew…that’s it, I’m staying in my house until – forever.

national didgeridoo day

November 22, 2009

Didge wizard Pitz Quattrone

…didgeridoo…didgeridooo…didgeridoo

It’s a fact, and one of many interesting ones about the native Australian instrument: the didgeridoo got its name from European settlers who heard it and decided the deep droning tones it made sounded like “didgeridoo didgeridoo didgeridoo….“.

Indigenous Aboroginal cultures know the 1,500+-year old instrument by its traditional name, the Yidaki.

This week World of Music welcomes local didgeridoo expert Pitz Quattrone to the show, we’ll play a little – learn a little – and find out why Vermont is the epicenter for National Didgeridoo Day (coming up this Wednesday, the 25th).

With live didgeridoo and a lot of other music from the South Pacific (Oceania, New Caledonia, New Zealand…) World of Music is a buzzing blend of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
