Andrew Langford evokes the desert heart of Australia in a performance that features drums, percussion and soundscapes.
This is The Didgeridoo Show Outback!
Spectacular imagery taken by the world-class photographer, Mike Gillam, enhances Andrew’s thrilling performance on a range of didgeridoos.
It’s impossible to be indifferent to the pulsating sound of this traditional instrument because it is the sound of life itself.
The whole universe comes together in the magical vibration of the didgeridoo.
Highlights of the show
The performance opens with a popular number called “Todd River”.
Visitors are surprised to learn that it does rain in the desert and when the rains come, the usually-dry river, runs through the Alice often flooding but renewing life on the arid land.
The Sounds of Starlight Theatre takes spectators on a sound excursion through the vibrant red landscapes of the desert interior.
From Emily Gap, site of the Arrente tribe’s Caterpillar Dreaming, to the howling wilderness where Australia’s last camel expedition met disaster, and from noisy outback mining towns to quiet camps ideal for star gazing.
Didgeridoos, drums and soundscapes beat out the eternal rhythm of the bush.
Other tracks feature bush-burning and hunting techniques, an insight into the legendary dingo and the spiritual Mimi Spirits of Arnhemland.
