The didgeridoo, “didjeridu”, diyiridú is an ancestral wind instrument (or aerophone) used by the aborigines of Australia. It is basically a wooden tube, which is made to sound by vibrating the lips inside. It is supposed to have been around 2,000 years old [citation needed], according to the dating of some cave paintings in which the instrument appears, although the aborigines themselves give it an age of up to 40,000 years. [citation needed] The term didgeridoo is not of aboriginal origin, it is the one that the Europeans gave it in their first visits to the island. In the dozens of aboriginal dialects there is a different word to designate this instrument, such as yidaki, ginjungarg, eboro, djalupu, maluk, etc. The didjeridu is closely linked to the spiritual existence of the aborigines. Its main function is to accompany a dance and a singer, serving as an accompanying instrument, as well as setting the tempo for the rhythm of the songs. Measurements: 1m x 6 cm
