Reviewer: Liner Notes

Like the previous volume, this one is definitely of interest to those with a deep interest in aborigine corroboree songs and didjeridu accompaniment. Most interesting to the didjeridu enthusiast are the didjeridu only tracks which are magnificent to listen to and learn from. The overtone playing and vocalizations are worthy of careful attention.
Reviewer: Sean Borman

Of the five recordings, this is the one for didjeridu enthusiasts. The recording includes many tracks featuring the didjeridu rather than vocal parts and frequently after a didjeridu piece there is a voice imitation of the rhythm just played. This is an excellent album for learning traditional playing - if you can keep up!
