Review:

The didgeridoo is one of the most unusual and fascinating of instruments. At first blush, its guttural groan sounds almost primitive. Yet it possesses a reverberated resonance that makes it sound like the instrumental equivalent of Tibetan overtone chanting.

Australian-based label Music Mosaic has always taken a particular shine to the instrument, and their compilation DIDGERIDOO FANTASY shows this. The album is less funky than some of the label's other didgeridoo releases, featuring songs that are rhythmic, somewhat smooth and focused on melody while the didg sounds in the backdrop. Included here are songs by prolific didg player Stephen Kent, regular Music Mosaic contributor Ariel Kalma, Rivertribe, Andrew Clermoint and others.
