L.A.Outback and The Aboriginal Dreamtime Fine Art Gallery present
An Exhibit of Rare, Exotic and Contemporary Didgeridoos
This amazing exhibit was the first of its kind in the U.S. and well over 100 people attended the opening night reception. It was the largest crowd the Aboriginal Dreamtime gallery in Los Angeles has ever had!
L.A.Outback Didgeridoos curated the exhibit featuring instruments by the most famous crafters from Australia and beyond. Guests were able to see and play didgeridoos made from traditional Australian eucalyptus, agave, yucca, bamboo and native timbers. The Barry Martin collection showcased vintage instruments from the 1950s up to the 1990s. There were examples of mago and yidaki (didgeridoos from remote regions of Arnhem Land), as well as contemporary didgeridoos in every shape and size.
