Charlie McMahon-inventor of the didjeribone
Updated: Apr 19, 2022
Charlie McMahon's DingoGringo is the didjeridu and electro cross breed of a sound by Charlie McMahon and Peter Strong (loops) and Pasco Schravemade (keyboards). They perform DOWNSTAIRS at Avalon 3pm today. There are a few tickets left.
Charlie has toured / performed with the likes of Midnight Oil, Sunrise Band, Bart Willoughby, Janes Addiction and Carlos Peron. His recorded music is often used as sound track to evoke an Australian essence and played on sound tracks of iconic movies such as Mad Max and Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Charlie fronted the seminal Gondwanaland band that prefigured world music and Indigenous cultural revival by a decade. His invention of the Didjeribone meant that next time he went to play with midnight oil, he could take one single didj. Why? the slide didjeribone can change key- the alternative - lugging 5 heavy wooden didjeridus each in a different key!
