T

he Didjeridu is undoubtedly one of the Earth's oldest musical instruments. Invented by the Aborigines of northern Australia, the instrument predates recorded history by thousands of years and figures prominently in Aboriginal legends of the creation of the Earth, called the Dreamtime.

Essentially a hollow tree branch, the Didjeridu is a wind instrument that produces a continuous low pitched drone over which the performer can add a wide range of effects such as rhythmic patterns and imitations of wild animals.

The sound is at once unique and instantly recognizable, and in recent years has been featured on a number of television commercials with references to Australia, such as Outback Steakhouse, Foster's beer, and Subaru commercials featuring Paul Hogan of "Crocodile Dundee" fame.

Stan has accompanied performers as diverse as acoustic guitarist Dominic Gaudious, performance-art Rock band Heinous Bienfäng, and played solo didj at the Austrailian-themed Nations Bank pavilion at Atlanta's Dogwood Festival.
