DidjibodhrŠn

The DidjibodhrŠn is a mix of a bodhrŠn (Irish hand drum) and a didjeridu (Australian windinstrument). The frame of the instrument forms the didjeridu and the goatskin stretched over the frame forms the drum.

When played as a didjeridu only the goatskin starts vibrating, creating a special sound. The DidjibodhrŠn can be played as didjeridu only, as bodhrŠn only or as DidjibodhrŠn, which is tapping the goatskin drum with the fingers while playing the ring as a didjeridu.
