Fundijeri - fun didgeridoo music from Chris Holland

Here's my first didgeridoo Album, finished in 2007 Some of the tracks were recorded in Kangaroo Valley, Australia, others in Surrey and Exeter, England I am inspired by natural sounds, rhythms and landscapes... also the sacred. Here you will find a mixture of music influenced by various stimuli including a cranky cement mixer, the beautiful call of the Australian Magpie, the deep earth and daydreaming while cleaning your teeth. I hope you enjoy it. It was difficult to choose a track to let you listen to for free... but in the end I chose the upbeat Tea's Up! It's a layered track based on the rhythm of an old cement mixer... and was a lot of fun making. Hence fun-didgeridoo-music or Fundijeri!
