Over twenty years ago, a Japanese artist named Hiroki Morimoto, also known as Goma, encountered a mysterious instrument—the didgeridoo—that was to change his life. Now an internationally renowned musician, Goma’s journey with the didgeridoo is inspiration for all of us to look further and explore cross-cultural connections even if they are an ocean apart.


This summer, The Japan Foundation, Sydney presents a series of events that will touch on musical dialogue between Japanese and Indigenous Australian culture. A special talk by researcher and musician Nobuhiko Chiba will also introduce music from Hokkaido's indigenous peoples, the Ainu.
