Thank you.....ghost of GW and Martin...!
Grazie Martin , sì sono io quel Luca!!! Grazie per avermi indicato questo forum...è bellissimo! Ma il mio Inglese non è buono...nel senso che riesco a leggere bene, ma a scrivere faccio davvero fatica!
Sorry....I write in Italian because Martin can read this language...!

Hello to everybody!I'm Volod from Romania.I have recently discovered the fine sound of the didgeridoo,and I have bought my firs didgeridoo.It's made of bamboo 1,2 m and about...2-3 cm at the top.I'm not a specialist,but i hope it'll work ok.I discovered the didgeridoo while I was making searches about the kargyraa throat singing style that uses harmonics and overtones too.
So...I watched many video tutorials from youtube on how to play didgeridoo,but...some parts i could not understand how they are made...so I'm asking for your help if you have time.Many thanks and i wish you all that is best!

Hi Volod

good to have you hear! You're the first player I know from Romania. Do you know any others from your country?

Hi seriouschris!thank you for your welcoming!I don't know any other didgeridoo players from Roumania.I'm not sure if other romanians discovered yet the beauty of this instrument and play it.
About the didgeridoo...I was thinking and I think in Roumania there is an instrument similar to didgeridoo.But is much longer and the sound is different.I'll try to find some samples and post them.The instrument is called "bucium".very old instrument used by the native people of Roumania,the Dacs.It was mostly used by shepherds for signalling and communication in the forested mountains, as well as for guiding sheep and dogs.
Anyway I'll be glad if I found other Romanians that play the didj

ok,enter this site and it'll start playing a sample of how the bucium sounds http://www.motii.ro


and on this link you'll find some more details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucium

This is usually 1.5m to 3m in length and made of well-seasoned deal, maple, ash, lime or hazel wood which is conical or cylindrical bored, slit lengthways, hollowed out and then glued together. In the north it can be made of galvanised iron and folded like a trombone. As it does not have valves or finger holes it can only play the pitches in the natural harmonic series.

Hey Volod

that sounds and looks very much like the Swiss Alphorn, see here: http://forum.serioussticks.com/viewtopic.php?t=335

I'd love to try one of these buciums for comparison.

Hi, I'm certainly interested in finding information about how these instuments are actually constructed from Lime tree bark.

Serious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEorKvTr ... re=related
and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArvEjSwq ... re=related

Off the wall: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHw2dtfq ... re=related

I wanted to include the picture of the girls playing in the following url http://www.eliznik.org.uk/RomaniaMusic/bucium.htm , but the 'attach image' appears to be missing ??? Has it been switched off????

This image, with the clearer banding on the instruments, makes me even more curious about their construction - maybe the lime sap in the bark forms a natural seal, just a wild guess :?

Later quote 'The tube is made from a straight piece of pine or spruce (preferably one that has been struck by lightning). This is split in two in order to carve out the core section. The sections are once again joined together and then wrapped in lime bark.'


I want one :twisted:

Paul
