  Didgeridoo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The didgeridoo (or didjeridu) is a wind instrument of the Indigenous Australians of northern Australia.
Authentic Aboriginal didgeridoos produced in traditionally-oriented communities in northern Australia are usually made from hardwoods, especially the various eucalyptus species that are endemic to the region.
The rhythm of the didgeridoo and the beat of the clapsticks are precise, and these patterns have been handed down for generations upon generations.

 How to play Didgeridoo
The didgeridoo is also known by the name of Yidaki, which is a word that the Yolungu people use in the northern parts of Australia.
We must remember that the didgeridoo is one of the oldest wind instruments in the world and therefore it is a very simple instrument to play.
To incorporate our tongue, ok remember we need to keep the didgeridoo sound which is the loose lips and the wind passing through, and using the tongue on the top, the roof of your mouth and flicking it down to hit the front of your lips.

This means that the frequency of a 1.32cm long didgeridoo will be about 3.4% higher if the temperature is 40° C, which is halfway between C and C#.
