A slightly faster recording than Baka, with additional instruments and players. Paddy LeMercier of Toulouse, France plays violin blending a variety of styles including Celtic, Cajun, gypsy, mid-eastern. Sagar N'Gom from Senegal, Africa plays traditional African drums and Ian Campbell plays drum kit. The songs are as melodic as Baka's, but the styles range farther, from Arabic to Cajun to Afro-Cuban.

If you enjoy jazz, and relaxed gypsy style music, then you'll likeOutback a lot. Graham and Martin are both classically trained musicians. Martin's classical guitar education shines through in Outback's work. I'm struggling to describe their music, but if you've every heard the South African band "Tananas," (unlikely) and liked them, then Outback is for you. Don't forget that Graham Wiggins went on to become Dr. Didj., so check out that entry in the discography. Dance The Devil Away is very similar to "Baka" in style, but is still very enjoyable. It draws on musical influences from around the globe interpreted into the unique Outback style.

Another popular mix featuring didjeridu with varied world rhythms including guitar, drums, Senegalese percussion, and French fiddle.
