G-day Elizabeth Lane Elementary! You are in for a special treat on Monday, November 17. What is Didgeridoo Down Under you ask? Didgeridoo Down Under or DDU for short, is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, science, literacy development, puppetry, comedy, character building and audience participation. The didgeridoo, usually a hollowed-out tree trunk, 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 highly entertaining … a one-of-a-kind “edu-tainment” experience. You’ll learn about Aussie culture, animals and more, all while moving & grooving to the pulsing rhythms of the didge! Students will listen while performers Rob Thomas and Tanya Gerard lead the ELE community through the 45-minute “edu-tainment.” Rob and Tanya have been performing with and making didgeridoos for more than 20 years. They’ve recorded several CDs, and have produced music for numerous films. They recently moved from New Mexico to North Carolina to share their Didgeridoo Down Under show throughout the eastern U.S.
