The didgeridoo is an ancient instrument of the Aboriginal peoples of Australia, a group of cultures that dates back tens of thousands of years. The didgeridoo is believed to date back at least approximately 2,000 years, based on datings of petroglyphs. It is also believed to have originated in the far north of Australia, and that only in the last 200 years or much more recently spread to other parts of Australia. It is still in the “top end” that the didgeridoo is most common and an important part of indigenous life.

We’ve tried most of the easily-affordable didgeridoos out there, and these remain our favorites. And we still regularly use and perform with our original Slider Didgeridoo that we bought many years ago. Many of the inexpensive didges marketed to beginners and apnea patients are harder to play, poorly pitched, with big bores and molded mouthpieces that are uncomfortable. Not these didges! Our didgeridoos are comfortable, easy to play instruments that are a joy to play and will last for years!

Didgeridoo for Sleep Apnea

Numerous medical organizations are recommending that playing the didgeridoo (also didjeridoo, didjeridu, didg, didj, yidaki, mago, etc.) can help people with obstructive sleep apnea, a common disorder that can have serious health implications, and also some cases of snoring that have a throat component. Playing the didgeridoo strengthens and tones the tissues of the throat, and can also provide good exercise for the respiratory system, as well as a meditation aid. We are NOT physicians and recommend that patients consult their professional healthcare providers and to follow their recommendations.

From the USA National Institutes of Health (NIH):

“One of the challenges in the treatment of sleep disorders is poor compliance. Thus new treatments not only need to be effective but also be ones that people are motivated enough to use. Didgeridoo playing seems to meet these requirements. Participants were highly motivated during the trial and practiced, on average, almost six days a week, which was even more than the protocol asked for. Regular playing of a didgeridoo reduces sleep apnea and snoring in people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and also improves the sleep quality of partners. Severity of disease, expressed by the apnea-hypopnoea index, is also substantially reduced after four months of didgeridoo playing.”

Playing the didgeridoo is fun, sounds great, and is easy for most people to learn! These qualities make it easy to stick with a program.
