Didgeridoo Down Under: Amazing Virtual Programs!

Description

We offer 5 virtual programs: 1) Didgeridoo Down Under Show (variety program for kids & families) 2) Aussie Funk Jam (didgeridoo workshop for tweens & teens) 3) Music & More from Down Under and Beyond (didgeridoo concert for adults) 4) Protect the Planet: Earth Science & Ecological Entertainment (science show for kids) 5) Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf: Unleash Your Inner Author! (storytelling & motivational show for kids) 1) The DDU Show is an energetic fusion of Australian music, culture, puppetry, comedy, storytelling 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 more than music. It’s interactive, educational and super fun! DDU is perfect for 2021 SRP theme “Animals” … – Our didgeridoo music includes many Australian animal sounds. – We display photos of Aussie wildlife (among many other props). – We include a section of comedic and educational animal puppetry. – Our interactive storytelling involves kids acting as various animals. – We promote environmentalism and protecting all creatures! 2) Aussie Funk Jam is a unique, hands-on musical workshop. Participants learn how to play the didgeridoo – including animal sounds and basic rhythms – with household items such as cardboard tubes. The workshop facilitator also shows how homemade didgeridoos can be decorated. 3) Music & More from Down Under and Beyond is a visionary program created by virtuoso didgeridoo player and master multimedia producer Rob Thomas. Rob mixes funky didgeridoo rhythms, worldly percussion instruments and relaxing soundscapes ... while immersing the audience in stunning virtual landscapes. 4) Protect the Planet takes audience members on an epic scientific adventure, from the birth of the universe to the age of the dinosaurs to the modern world ... all while being immersed in awe-inspiring visuals and the pulsing rhythms of the didgeridoo. 5) Unleash Your Inner Author is an entertaining, educational and motivational program by children’s author Tanya Gerard. Tanya and her husband Rob have raised wolves and wolf-dog hybrids as pets for 20 years. Their pets – and their love of nature and storytelling – inspired Tanya to write two children’s books, The Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf, and a soon-to-be-published sequel. Tanya is now on a mission to motivate children to practice reading and writing, and to unlock their own inner author.

Virtual Performance Technical Needs

For a live streaming event, it is helpful, but not essential, for a librarian to act as a co-host.

Special Notes

We started performing online in spring 2020, and since then we have presented 200+ virtual programs for libraries, schools and other venues. We have invested thousands of dollars in high-end studio equipment and software, and have spent hundreds of hours on research and development, in order to create enthralling online programs for both kids and adults. We use specialized broadcasting software and green screens to deliver immersive experiences of sight, sound and imagination in both our videos and our live virtual programs.
If you need assistance, no worries, we’ll be happy to explain the technology and to make the process as hassle-free as possible. We’re here to help!

All of our virtual program promo videos can be viewed at www.didgedownunder.com/gallery.

Everyone in Didgeridoo Down Under has been granted permission to perform with the didgeridoo from at least one, if not several, indigenous players.  We highly respect the Aboriginal people, and we do not take their blessings lightly.

    Rob Thomas performed Didgeridoo Down Under for the Yavapai County Free Library District. This virtual performance was aired on the district Facebook page. During the show the audience hears the unique sounds of the didgeridoo and learns about “Down Under” in Australia. Many fun facts, marvelous visual effects and a talented performance by Rob blend to make this a family friendly and all ages event!
