Mmmmmwwwwaaaaaaaahhhhhwaaaaawwwaaa mmmmwwwwaaaaa waaaaaaaannnnnnnn.
That's what a Didgeridoo sounds like. I can do it pretty good huh? Wiki Didgeridoo The crap du jour is, Rough Guide: Australian Aboriginal Music. I posted this to punish Australians for not looking at my crap. So you other people from Countries not looking at my crap, be warned. The Rough Guide series of CDs does the Compilation thing very well. On the other hand, the Putumayo CDs are really hit and miss. The Library has a boatload of them. If in doubt, go with a Rough Guide compilation over a Putumayo Compilation every time. Not that the Putumayo series is bad or anything, it's just that their music selections for the CDs seems a little contrived and pandering.
This particular compilation seems to go for a very respectful approach towards Aboriginal music. It runs the gamut from the very traditional to the very modern. The idea is to let the listener know that Aboriginal music is more than just a half naked guy sitting in the sand blowing through a wood tube.
