The didjeridoo is an aerophone from the brass family. It comes from the Top end of Australia where it's traditionally used as an instrument to accompany the singers, the clap sticks and the dancers in ceremonial context. It's usually made of Eucalyptus logs naturally hollowed by termites. The most common species of trees used are Eucalyptus stingybark, bloodwood, and Woollybutt, depending on the region.
