More shots from today’s live performance at the Radiator with Vermont’s own didgeridoo master (and maker!) Pitz Quattrone. He’ll be at The Bee’s Knees in Morrisville with the Earthman Band, Wednesday night – for the 2nd annual National Didgeridoo Day. Why not?

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.
