About


G’day! Didgeridoo Down Under is one of the most popular K-12 enrichment programs in South Carolina. We specialize in weaving Australia-themed cultural arts, core curriculum, character building, motivational speaking and audience participation into high-energy shows, workshops and residencies. Since 2004, we’ve presented more than 7,000 programs at elementary / middle / high schools, colleges, theaters, festivals and other venues nationwide.The Didgeridoo Down Under Show is a unique fusion of Australian music, culture, art, science, literacy development, comedy, character building, anti-bullying and audience movement / participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It's interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages! During the show, we play a variety of exotic didgeridoos. We also use a multitude of props – including a vocabulary list, a globe, motivational signs, artifacts, artwork and puppets – to deliver educational lessons and empowering messages. We adjust our programs according to age levels and learning objectives. A study guide is provided for pre- and post-performance lesson plans.We also offer didgeridoo workshops, immersive residencies (2-5 days) and world-class concerts.
