I took this picture of this young man playing the traditional australian Didgeridoo

right on the pier at the sydney opera house ..  The music was beautiful , after a few seconds it actually was soothing and nice and calm …

  2. I think traditional instruments have their own charm. I am really impressed with the ones that are available in India. I wish that more people start appreciating all kinds of music instead of just listening to loud drums/ beats and Guitars.

    Didgeridoo looks more like extended version of “Flute” and sarcastically it looks like a “Hookah”.

    Traditional instruments have a charm of their own. No wonder oldies will always remain goldies.

    I have never seen this instrument! Must be sounding like Pt. Chaurasia’s flute…he uses thick flute too, sometimes.

    The designs on the player’s body is interesting!

    Wonderful picture, Bikram!! I remember once seeing similar instruments being played by some artists at the pier in San Francisco.. and like you said, it was so sooothing to be just there, listening to it… I mean, people were walking around these artists, and yet, they were so immersed in playing this amazing music.. watching them play in itself was very relaxing…
