So it turns out our late night guests included two renowned drummers; Kozo Suganuma and Senri … [ Read the Rest... ]

MP3-Didgeridoo-Music

New MP3 Download Store

After many years of watching CD sales decline, we’ve really wanted to offer the ability to give customers the option of purchasing music as MP3 downloads. There are so many talented didgeridoo artists out there who really deserve to have their material heard, however we couldn’t afford to sit on inventory for extended periods as sales trickled in. As a result our CD section sadly became very limited. Well now the time is here to finally pull our vision together … [ Read the Rest... ]
