Crystal Bowl-Infused Shamanic Sound Journey with Didge Project


Didge Project’s Jerry Walsh and AJ Block got together to demo our new colored crystal bowl set with a 17 minute outdoor sound journey that you can enjoy in 4k resolution. In addition to our new color frosted crystal singing bowl set, AJ and Jerry busted out the didgeridoo, shaman drum, shruti box, throat singing and more for this video.

Some photos from our video shoot:


Crystal Singing Bowls are some of the most popular sound healing instruments these days since they hold such a big sound. We were super impressed by the versatility of this set, which features 7 bowls tuned to A = 440 hz and has the 7 notes of the C Major scale.

If you do any sort of work where you are holding sonic space for people, as a yoga teacher, healer, meditation facilitator, then having crystal singing bowls will definitely take your offering to a higher level.

WoodSlide: The 12-Tone Professional Slide Didgeridoo


The WoodSlide didgeridoo was created out of a dream to be able to play the didgeridoo drone in any of the 12 standard keys of western music, all on one instrument. Using a double slide mechanism, one slide made of wood, and one made of brass, this assembly will enable you to cover the whole chromatic range necessary to play in any key.

WoodSlide didgeridoos are professional quality instruments used by touring musicians around the world. Each instrument is handcrafted and tuned by master craftsman Jean-Yves Redor in France.

The older Woodslide model (with a range of 7 notes instead of the current design of 12 notes) was also featured in our Didgeridoo Comparison:

How To Add A Beeswax Didgeridoo Mouthpiece To Any Didgeridoo


Are you having trouble locking the seal on your didgeridoo mouthpiece? Are you looking for a comfortable and hygienic mouthpiece for your didgeridoo and guidance on how to apply it? Look no further; we’ve got you covered with this beeswax didgeridoo mouthpiece tutorial.

you have to heat up the beeswax (but not too much), then get the wax in your hands and start shaping it onto the mouthpiece. Focus on the inner seal first by pressing down into the bore of the didgeridoo. Then, once you’ve got a good inner seal, start pressing around the top of the beeswax and the outside to make a nice surface for your mouth to rest on. It’s much easier to see in video, so check out the beeswax didgeridoo mouthpiece tutorial video above and try it out!

Bamboo Overtone Flutes: Demo and Review of the La Rosa Abuelo Flutes from Perú


Here is a favorite instrument of ours, the Abuelo Flute, a bamboo overtone flute made by the family Peruvian Master of Sound, Tito La Rosa. The Abuelo flute is known as the Grandfather flute or the flute of the ancestors. When playing this flute ceremonially, it can be used to activate different centers of the body and bring you into balance on many levels. Playing the bamboo overtone flute requires very little technical skill and is very easy to play. You can achieve different tones by the amount of air pressure you blow into the flute. This flute always stands out and will become one of your favorites to play, too.

The Bamboo Overtone Flute comes in the keys of A, F, and D.

Flute of the Ancestors (Abuelo Flute) by La Rosa Flutes

(2 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


The Flute of the Ancestors, also known as the Abuelo Flute, is a traditional Andean-style bamboo overtone flute made by La Rosa Flutes, the company founded by master Andean flute player Tito La Rosa. Description for this instrument given by its designer, Tito La Rosa:

“The Flute of the Ancestors gives you strength to elevate yourself. It is not simply a flute; it is a staff of power. It can accompany your dance, remind you of your origins and also make sound. It’s characteristic is to produce harmonics over a fundamental sound. Over this fundamental sound it creates harmonics upward, but it always returns to the mother sound [the tonic] which is found in the middle, below and also above. There may be 5, 6 or occasionally 7 harmonics. This is called the Flute of the Grandfathers because it is played by the elder people of the community. It is a masculine instrument, different from the mama quena [another flute made by La Rosa Flutes and coming soon to Didge Project] which corresponds to the feminine. This works more on your masculine lineage, your roots and that to which you pertain. Its nature is to connect you to your ancestors.”
