Charlie McMahon and his Didjeribone visit Spirit Gallery

A quick demonstration by Charlie McMahon on the didjeribone during his most recent visit to Spirit Gallery.

 

Charlie invented this pitch shift slide didge in 1981 and is one of enduring legends of the didgeridoo in Australia.

 

A good friend of the store and regular visitor we thought you might like to see Charlie in action. Still going as strong as ever!!!
