Globalarium is a collection of pieces, whose central theme is a portrait of a unified world in harmony, through a light-hearted fusion of multiple ethnic music styles. Drawing much from rhythmic inspiration, and balancing on the central pivot of Western style 'grooves', the music sees the meeting of such diverse elements as didjeridu, classical flute, trumpet, shakuhachi, recorder, steel drum as well as a large selection of sampled and electronic sounds. Andy Peters plays didjeridu.
Reviewer: Liner Notes

This isn't an all-didj album by any means, but I happened to hear one of the cuts while on a plane and switching channels (I "never" listen to new-age-y stuff), and immediately looked up the CD on the CDC database and ordered it. 10 tracks, all good, some incredible. One is called 'Canyon of the Big Didge'.
