Didge Evolution

Virtuoso didgeridoo player and master multimedia producer Rob Thomas invites you on a journey to Australia ... and beyond. Rob was born in the U.S., lived in Australia, and has traveled the world, all of which have contributed to his unique and captivating musical project, Didge Evolution. The Didge Evolution concert mixes funky didgeridoo rhythms, pumping beats, percussion instruments and relaxing soundscapes with both organic and electronic sound effects ... all the while immersing the audience in a stunning virtual landscape of Australian forests, deserts, oceans and distant galaxies. Didge Evolution is much more than a musical event. It's a mesmerizing journey of sight, sound and imagination!

Didge Evolution also is educational and inspirational. The didgeridoo has been played by Australia's Aboriginal people for at least 1,500 years, and Rob explains its history and connections to the modern day. He also encourages college students to think creatively and imaginatively regarding their own careers, and to travel far and wide to better understand the interconnectivity of all humans. Audience members are encouraged to participate in a Q&A session after the show.

Rob is a true didgeridoo pioneer in the U.S. He has been making and playing didgeridoos for almost 30 years; has performed throughout the country; has recorded several CDs; and has produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX movie Sacred Planet. He is an expert in the virtual realm, and he has invested hundreds of hours in his professional production studio to create enthralling online shows and workshops. He takes pride in delivering superbly high-quality live virtual experiences!
