    1Didgeridoo Tracks [1995]


    Andrew Langford has been one of the very few player pioneers of didgeridoo who have changed public awareness of this iconic Australian indigenous instrument. From the initial general perception of the didgeridoo as an entity of Aboriginal amusement, dance, ceremony and initiation, knowledgeable musicians now regard the didgeridoo as having the status of a genuine serious musical instrument. Andrew is in the same exalted league as such great players as white fella Charlie McMahon, and Aborigines, David Hudson and William Barton.

    Andrew, as a professional horticulturist, travelled over much of the Northern Territory visiting many outback properties as part of his work. On cattle stations he met station owners, managers, ringers (stockmen), drovers and other workers – many of them Aborigines – and grew to understand and love this life. This work also took him to many Aboriginal communities. In Arnhem Land he experienced the many distinct styles of didgeridoo playing that occur in the different traditional homelands. Andrew's playing styles have been positively influenced by all of these unique Aussie experiences.

    Andrew Langford has an indepth understanding and love for the varied natural Australian environments including the landscapes, flora and fauna within the original birthplace of didgeridoo – Arnhem Land, and the vast and diverse landscapes, lifestyles and cultures of the folk of the immense country to its south, west and east. Andrew's recordings are masterfully presented and performed and each one is different; but none of them is contrived by overuse of multi-recording and multi-tracking techniques. For the lover of didgeridoo music – and for didgeridoo students of all levels of skill and experience – Andrew's didgeridoo playing is outstanding – not only to be heard by the listener(s), but for its technical excellence and creation of the atmosphere and images of places and life. This is so whether Andrew plays solo, or with one or more musicians, or with a whole orchestra.

    In 1996 Andrew founded the Sounds of Starlight Theatre in Alice Springs where he regularly thrills audiences from all over the world with "The Didgeridoo Show Outback". A spectacular multi-media show that conjures up the landscapes of the desert. Andrew evokes the heart of Australia's Red Centre. Audiences are captivated by the sounds and accompanying imagery during the performance as the didgeridoo creates the pulse of life itself.

    Today, Andrew is recognized internationally as a major exponent and interpreter of the didgeridoo. The rhythmic quality of his playing and his extensive knowledge of the history and origins of this unique instrument bring together an unforgettable performance.

    Corporate functions and events are no stranger to Andrew. In 2004 he was invited to play at the Australian Embassy in Paris, France, and during his six week European trip also performed in Germany and staged didgeridoo workshops in England and Scotland. In 2006 he was again invited to Germany where he played at the Australian Embassy in Berlin for the Australia Day celebrations.

    Andrew has toured extensively throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and USA. More recently at the beginning of 2015 he performed in Paris. His music has been used in BBC documentaries, lifestyle programs such as "Cox's Big Breakfast" in Melbourne and was being used to compliment French lecturer Jean Charbonneau's tour of France presenting Australia.
