Feel like you need some fresh inspiration? From stringed wind instruments to didgeridoo festivals in Portugal and Mexico, we’ve rounded up the best of what’s trending in the didgeridoo world.

1. The Electric Stringed Didgeridoo

The Elecric Stringed Didgeridoo is a unique hybrid instrument invented by Andy Graham. Andy is the inventor of the Slaperoo and has been on the didge scene for a long time. Literally 25 people sent me this video.

2. FATT Didgeridoo Festival

The Portuguese didgeridoo festival known as FATT has put together one of the nicest festival videos I’ve seen. Really nice visuals, great sound recordings, awesome fire spinning. What more could you ask for?

3. Will Thoren solo didgeridoo album preview

Will Thoren, founder of WET and MOB Didgeridoos, says “Its been a long time coming for this!:D I have been working on tracks for my first solo didgeridoo-focused album for about 8 months. This album should be ready [soon]. I will launch a pre-sale to raise money for the final recording/mixing/mastering in Sept or Oct. Thanks for Listening!”

4. The Celloridoo

Another video that was sent to me over 20 times. Cello and didgeridoo make a fantastic combination and to have them both in one instrument would be spectacular. Although this is only a 3D rendering, I will say that when this hits the market I’m buying one!

5. Festival Mexicano de Didgeridoo y Trompeta Maya

Another festival video that shows the diversity of activities when people gather around the didgeridoo. In Mexico there is a special focus on reviving the didgeridoo as a Mayan instrument.

6. Didgeridoo Psybient

If you asked me to define Psybient I probably couldn’t do it, but I know it has a heavy electronic component. This 90-minute video/playlist is popular, so enjoy!

7. ‘The New Swiss’ [Beatbox x Didgeridoo x Alphorn] in 2.7K !

8. Zalem & Thewill – Cave Madness – didgeridoo & Cajon
