The didjeridu is featured, and I like the combinations and arrangements more than the more rock based music with didj accompaniment that I have heard so often. There is one didjeridu 'nature study' in which Johnny (White Ant) Soames imitates a boomerang, blow fly, crickets, bullfrog, cave, crow, bush pigeon, kookaburra, emu, raven, dingo, kangaroo, dog and lizard. Very interesting!
Reviewer: Judy

Side one is a didjeridu, voice, guitar, and keyboards ambient collaboration. Side two has fantastic traditional didj, clapsticks and chanting.
Reviewer: The Australian Cultural Experience

Multi-instrumentalist Adam Plack and didjeridu master Johnny "White Ant" Soames in a percussive and dynamic evocation of the outbaack. Traditionaal music rewored in a contemporary form.
