New Life to Old Drums

Look at this beautiful focal point of Marko’s sun room!marko

Marko made that mammoth 20 plus years ago, and recently decided to dust it off and give it a new voice. The sound is so rich, warm and round. I want to sit in it all day. I could not on that day, however, because Marko gave me one of his old drums! I was there to put a new hide on it. I’m so lucky!

It was exciting, too, because not long ago, Marko and I finished interviews cataloging his personal didge history. My drum is a key player in the genesis of his career as a craftsman and innovator in the world of Didgeridoo.

Thank you, Marko!
