Introducing Sean Patrick Ryan. Sean has been playing and performing with the didgeridoo for over 15 years. Sean belong to the Kuku Nyunkal bubu bamanga. (the people of the Black Cockatoo mother country) from north Queensland.


Sean is one of the few professional Aboriginal didgeridoo players based in Sydney, Australia. He has accompanied many artists from a wide range of genres at a variety of venues. From performances with Australia’s premier jazz musician James Morrison at the Sydney Opera House, performances with well known Aboriginal musician Frank Yamma at Fox Studios in Sydney; playing with Djs at night clubs; performances at Kirribilli House for the Governor General of Australia (2011 and 2010); didjeridoo performances for Hettie Perkins at The “Art and Soul” Exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW , solo performances at Boardi Space at Peats Ridge Festival and an upcomg performance with Cirque Du Soleil, among others.


When he is not performing or booked for an event you can find Sean here at Spirit Gallery. There is not much he doesn’t know about the didgeridoo, hence the title “professor”


Sean also does all our private and group lessons and is also available for any event requiring an indigenous performer, educator and  didgeridoo player.
