Ash Dargan, Australia’s premier didjeridu player and recording artist (left), will give a free, multi-media performance, titled “Territory: 13 Sacred Journeys into Dreamtime,” Feb. 3 in Newcomb Hall Theater at 7 p.m.

Find out when Australia’s premier didjeridu player and recording artist, Ash Dargan, brings his multi-media performance, “Territory: 13 Sacred Journeys into Dreamtime,” to Newcomb Hall Theater Feb. 3 at 7 pm. Dargan, a member of the Larrikia tribe in Australia’s Northern Territory, incorporates indigenous and contemporary world music into a unique style that captures the spirit of his culture. In “Territory,” he creates a total sensory experience for the audience by layering the mysterious sounds of the didjeridu with recordings of Australian wildlife against a backdrop of stunning projected images from some of Australia’s most exotic landscapes.

An authentic instrument of Australian Aboriginal people, the didjeridu is a long, wooden drone pipe made from bamboo or a tree hollowed out by termites, about four or five feet in length and a few inches in diameter. It is blown into like a trumpet.

Dargan’s visit is sponsored by the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection and Newcomb Hall. The performance is free and open to the public. Call 244-0234 for information.
