The Didgeridoo Down Under Show is a unique fusion of Australian music, culture, art, science, comedy, character building, anti-bullying and audience participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It's interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages! During the show, we play a variety of exotic didgeridoos. We also use a multitude of props – including a vocabulary list, a globe, motivational signs, artifacts, artwork and puppets – to deliver educational lessons and empowering messages. We adjust our programs according to age levels and learning objectives. DDU will motivate your students to appreciate world music and art … respect multiculturalism and diversity … get excited about learning and reading ... think creatively and imaginatively … act with kindness and tolerance … stand up against bullying … protect the environment … become better global citizens ... and have incredible fun!

G’day! Didgeridoo Down Under is one of the most popular K-12 enrichment programs in the U.S. We specialize in weaving Australia-themed cultural arts, core curriculum, character building, motivational speaking and audience participation into high-energy shows and workshops for all ages. Since 2004, we’ve presented more than 7,000 programs at schools and other venues nationwide, but we’re based in North Carolina! DDU performers Rob Thomas and Tanya Gerard are true didgeridoo pioneers in the U.S. They have played and made didges for 20+ years; have recorded several albums; and have produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX move Sacred Planet. Tanya, who grew up in Australia, also has written a children’s book, The Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf.
