To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Didge Hi Toyoji, I just want to say thank you for this terrrrific server of yours!! Over six months I return at times to see what's new. As far as I can see, it is still the best one on the web. I like most the sound samples from the CDs I can't get here anywhere. They are a big inspiration for my playing. So long and please keep up the good work. Harald

Excellent source of info. with a good message. In the sea of information and technology of our age it becomes disheartening to see a culture that in many ways is more advanced than our western world, slip to the way side, lost to the ignorance of the many. I am glad there are people like you that refuse to let this happen. Nickolai A. Kobylk Graduate student at UC Davis. Sacramento CA.

I set out to find "something" for my Australian-American daughter, Erica, who is a cadet at West Point and a recent recipient of a new didj which she intends to master. I did not expect to find such a wonderful source. Thanks once again for your hard work. Incidentally, there is a shop in the City Cross Arcade in Adelaide (just off the Rundle Mall) which sells high quality didj's which a gentleman (who can play quite well) able to demonstrate them. I have forgotten the name of the man. It seems that the quality is better than at Tandanya. David Hemmy

In fact both albums you feature contain pure traditional performances from the Gumatj and Rirratjingu clands of the Yolngu people of North East Arnhem Land in The Northern Territory of Australia. Some of the best non Aboriginal players I know are using these tracks to learn from. Great Site. We get a lot of traffic to our site and many people have mentioned your site.

I also Thought that your pages were presented in a very nice fasion and dew to limited graphics (except for the great gecko pictures) the pages were also fast to view. Thanks Again for a Great page!

To: sean borman Date: Thu, 21 Dec 1995 09:46:04 +0000 Subject: Re: Dreamtime Reply-to: Turc@cris.com Priority: normal X-mailer: Pegasus Mail for Windows (v2.01) Content-Length: 1467 Status: RO X-Lines: 31 Hi Sean, Yes, thanks to you and Dreamtime I've made contact with some very interesting people who seem eager to share the magic of the Digi with others. I was raised in a family where thanks to my mother, there was music all the time, but in my 45 years I'd have never predicted I would somehow mysteriously be drawn to a primative instrument that somehow seems trapped in mankinds evolution. Odd don't you think in a technological/information age such as ours that such a primal sound would find such renewed interest. I work in the high-tech end of the entertainment industry and am ususally known for my inovative work in creating visual effects, but the haunting sound of this prehistoric woodwind, made me take a moment to reflect on the real world, in areas such as where its been and where it might be going. I guess thats natural at this point in my life, especially as the father of 5 children. My interest was first sparked by a program on the Learning Channel, when I happened upon a special depicting a native digi player, first making his instrument, then playing it endlessly while sitting on a rock overlooking some grand vista. The sound has been trapped in my subconcious ever since. Where, I would think, would anyone from Clifton Park, New York ever have the opportunity to gain more information on a subject as apparently as obscure as a Didgeridoo? Ah, the Internet, you can find anything here. Thanks again, Tom Culnan

Well anyhow, I want to ask you if I may use some of your pictures for my own website. I am relatively new, so maybe it is allowed always but I want to ask anyhow. I want to start my own page about didgeridoos because I am absolutely fascinated by them ever since I saw them the first time about eight years ago. I will be looking for various stuff and maybe make stuff. If i have anything interesting I'll send it to you. Okay, bye for now from the Netherlands, Peter Baars
