Didjeridu & Traditional Music of the Top End
The content of this page was originally created by Peter Lister

Didjeridu Home : Acknowledgements


The following people have provided, through encouragement, various suggestions, critiques and inspiration, the stimulus for these pages to be created, and in many ways determined the content. To these, my fellow didjeridu enthusiasts and players, I give acknowledgement.

John Burrows, Brandi Chase, Ed Drury, Michael Duncan, Randy Graves, Dave Hicks, Guan Y Lim, Richard Man and Cassy Nancarrow.

I also wish to recognise the pioneering recording of this rich and vibrant music by AP Elkin, LM West, T Jones and A Moyle - without their efforts (at times under extreme technical conditions), those of us so passionate about this music would never have had the opportunity to enjoy it in its intended context, and in such variety. To Trevor Jones especially for having concentrated his efforts upon didjeridu - I still marvel at his ability to undertsand and describe playing techniques.

But most of all I am forever grateful to the Aboriginal musicians themselves for their willing and enthusiastic performances and for allowing it to be recorded so that we may enjoy it and hopefully better understand and appreciate their rich culture. A special thankyou to those Yolngu whom invited me to sit with them during ceremonial performance - the highest honour ever accorded me.


Thank you

Peter R Lister
