THURSDAY, AUGUST 9—AUSTRALIAN DIDGERIDOO-JAZZ NIGHT
6:30-9PM—THE DIDGE PROJECT, a music collective and didgeridoo awareness organization based in New York City and led by jazz musicians AJ Block and Tyler Sussman, combines the sounds of the didgeridoo with jazz and world music. Where world rhythm and tribal beats meet modern jazz and hip-hop, their music is both ancient and progressive. Each live performance blazes new territory, blending the sound of the didgeridoo, an aboriginal wind instrument used for ritual and ceremony in Australia, with keyboards, saxophone, flute, drums, ethnic winds, and percussion.
