If we look at the etymology of the word ‘didgeridoo’ or its other name ‘yidaki’, then we seen that they were originally made of bamboo. A bit later, the priorities of Kangaroo Land’s aboriginal population changed, and eucalyptus became the traditional didgeridoo material. Nowadays, eucalyptus is concerned to be the best material for didgeridoo, as the clearest sound is reached due to the wood firmness and the grain structure. The secret is that eucalyptus grain has the other specific – it collects water. Looking for this water, white ants hollow the trees during the drought period, thus creating the sound of the future instrument.
