Devon Music Services and the Didgeridoo Man raise £200 for Australian Aboriginal Land Rights with The Big Didgeridoo Adventure

Devon Music Services have employed Chris Holland The Didgeridoo Man to deliver a music and musical story-making project to 6 schools in the Exeter area. The Big Didgeridoo Adventure project aims to encourage children to learn to play one of the worlds oldest instruments, raise awareness of ‘The Dreamtime’, Australian Aboriginal Culture, and work together to make musical ‘journey songs’. The project will culminate with more workshops at this years Devon Music Mix at Westpoint on Wednesday the 25th June.

Leanne Sims, Class teacher at Wynstream School said Chris "Engaged our children – including the challenging ones – on all levels making the whole session a thoroughly enjoyable, beneficial and educational experience. I would highly recommend Chris to any school, any age group and any one wanting a brilliant time!"

Chris Holland, known as ‘the didgeridoo man’ by hundreds of school children across Devon. Chris, who delivers didgeridoo workshops for schools, teambuilding and private tuition, will be donating £200 to Survival International, the worldwide organisation supporting tribal peoples and their human rights.
“I earn some of my income from playing and teaching didgeridoo. Giving something back is the least I can do to help Aboriginal Australians have the right to live on the land of their ancestors! ” Said Chris.
