AllMusic Review by

Didgeridoo is an ambitious set from Etherean Music combining traditional didgeridoo playing with contemporary electronica as well as interviews and additional liner note information about Australia's aborigines. So while "Cave Dance" is like a field recording in its earthy simplicity -- just the whir of the didgeridoo and homemade rhythms -- the aptly titled "Tribal Techno" matches the lead instrument to a mixture of organic and electronic percussion. This kind of cultural and musical blending isn't new, and Didgeridoo doesn't take the concept in any direction that so-called world music hasn't gone before. But it's a nice package and is earnest in its intention to explore the aborigines' culture and music.
