wi-didgeridoos-lrgTraditionally, the Australian didgeridoo is made of eucalyptus wood, which has been allowed to be hollowed out by termites. A mouthpiece made of beeswax is then affixed to the end to allow players to adjust the size to suit themselves. Although it is impossible to deduce its exact age, archaeological studies suggest that the indigenous peoples of Australia have been playing didgeridoos for both ceremonial and recreational purposes for around 1,500 years. Nowadays has also gained international popularity. In addition to eucalyptus, modern didgeridoos can be found in plastic, hemp, various hardwoods, and leather.
