Traveling musicians...




Bit of a treat in the city yesterday.. well two actually! Firstly we had a catch up with fellow blogger and his partner from Melbourne Andrew, here for a week.. thankfully Perth is putting on her best weather for le occasion! On the way back to the car the evocative, earthy sounds of the didgeridoo vibrated along Murray St. Traveling musicians Whales Ave, here entertaining Perthites and visitors for a while made it look too easy.. have you ever tried? It so isn't easy, I can't even produce a pitiful peep :) You can see them in action here.. four minutes of incroyable breathing control.. and yes I do love the bagpipes also :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe... p.s. still catching up!

  1. When the instrument is bigger than the person, it requires a specialist!

  15. HI, Grace. Your photo reminded me that last year we saw a terrific Austrian blues band, Harper and Midwest Kind, which featured a didgeridoo. Thought his was the best band of the weekend. To learn more about Peter Harper go to:

  16. Music is so central to cultures and I love to see the different instruments available to fulfill that need.

  17. It takes a special musician to draw a melody out of those pipes Grace.

  18. We had a street musician at a shopping plaza here for a long time, but the manage at Kmart had the police make him leave. Don't know why. He certainly wasn't bothering anyone. Most people liked having him there.

  19. How fun. It sounds like a perfect day. Meeting up with a fellow blogger and getting some free music on the same day. I loved hearing them play on that little video. Thanks for the link.

  21. We have one from Alice (Springs, 1999) and Ingo really could play actually quite well. I only got a pfft out of the thing, though ;-)
    Ha, we´ll have our very first busker-festival this summer, can´t wait!

  23. The only time I have seen someone play a didgeridoo was at Circular Quay in Sydney, and it was a native man. A most unusual sound.
