Chris ‘daku’ Holland – The Didgeridoo Man

As seen on

HI! Chris Holland here. I am a professional didgeridoo player, author, storyteller, nature connection & creative outdoor learning practitioner based in Devon, but travelling nationally and internationally.  

I have provided hundreds of didgeridoo and Australia topic workshops in schools since 1999.

I have been given the Aboriginal name Daku, it means ‘sand hill’ in the Dayari language. 

Playing didgeridoo connects me to my breath, the rhythm of the moment and the place I am playing in. I think it is such an ancient and earthy sound. I am reminded I am part of Nature – it’s one of the reasons I like playing and teaching so much.


I provide excellent Australia, didgeridoo and aboriginal earth art workshops for schools and festivals. So basically I do didgeridoo workshops and tuition for children and for adults of all ages and what form they take depends on needs and desired outcomes.

I perform didgeridoo music & re-tell stories, dreamtime and others, to audiences big and small


I deliver outstanding, fun and effective team building events too, as well as giving one to one lessons to private students.

I am grateful to all those that have gone before me… ancestors, explorers, my teachers and all the tubes of wood, plastic, metal, pottery and hoover pipes that have enabled me to play didgeridoo today!

Thanks for reading this far too!
