bROthER blends the ancient with the contemporary, creating a
unique mix of pop/rock with strong Celtic and World music influences that bridges the gap
between mainstream radio and World music. The band, as Music Connection says, "stirs
a primitive, primal passion".
The Promise is a contemporary folk/Celtic group based in
Melbourne Australia, which brings together Celtic and world influences. The Promise was
formed in 1995 when Keith Wray-McCann met with Gordon Gunn to exploit Keiths Celic past,
and produce authentic Celtic music.

What is a Didjeridu? - The most interesting
Aboriginal musical instrument is the didjeridu. It was only known to the tribes of Eastern
Kimberly and the northern third of the Northern Territory. The instrument is an unstopped
hollowed piece of bamboo or termite-hollowed wood, usually the latter, about four or five
feet long, and two or more inches in internal diameter, with a mouth-piece made of wax or
hardened gum. The player blows into the instrument in trumpet fashion.

The Didgeridoo is a long, slightly conical wooden trumpet or
horn, used traditionally by the aboriginal people of Northern Australia. Aboriginal men
select a branch of from a tree which has been hollowed out by termites.
