Unfortunately up to this point our list of references beyond our area was pretty limited. Well about a month ago, the light bulb went off and we realized with the technology at our disposal we could link ourselves to those folks and … [ Read the Rest... ]

AJ Block of Didge Project in New York came by LA Outback for a brief visit while he was in town to perform at the Aboriginal Dreamtime Gallery in West Hollywood. While he was here we captured a video of him demonstrating his wooden slide didgeridoo by Wood Slide. We had heard of these didgeridoos but never seen one, so it was cool to hear AJ playing one.

AJ Block and Will Thoren played didgeridoo solos and duets during a two hour special event on Saturday night. The gallery drew a really nice turn out of didgeridoo enthusiasts and those just curious about the instrument.
