Figure from Kuranda at Cairns - Aboriginal artist playing on didgeridoo.

Original inhabitants of Australia - Aboriginal people - created probably the only genuine culture & art in Australia nowadays. After-Cook-population did not create nothing special - it is too non-homogeneous community to determine conditions for new homogenous culture & art. Above, there is a figure of an Aboriginal artist playing didgeridoo, ancient aboriginal blowing instrument. The artist plays on didgeridoo stoplessly, means he has to take breath in as well as let breath out in that same moment. Yes, it is possible, but you have to practice many weeks with bucket of water. Depending on shape of didgeridoo, it produces sound similar to Slovak fujara, but in a very lower tone, octave.
