Didgeridoo #299


This and #298 were from the same 40ft flower! My dad’s neighbor sent me an email over a year ago letting me know their huge agave americana had shot up its flower and she would save it for me until it was ready to be harvested. When I went to collect the stalk I was blown away by its size and is the biggest agave I have ever harvested. I am actually also making a drum and possibly a third didge from it as well. Agave is just magical , I can’t believe it can shoot up a flower that towers over the ancient trees near it. This is one of the thickest and most dense agaves and this one plays with so much ease, power, and presence. The vocals are the real star mixed with that mesmerizing drone as they seem to project differently than on a lot of didges and seem amplified and travel so well out this didge.  The same goes for #298 so must be something magical within this stalk. I would highly recommend this for meditative and sound healing style of play. Thanks Denise for keeping the stalk up for me and allowing it to live on forever!
