Perhaps you were looking for some trance-y didjeridoo/jews harp/beatbox music today. If so, you're in luck.

FACT: The first track syncs up almost perfectly to the whistled part of For a Few Dollars More's opening theme.
Why is it I never enjoy trance music unless it's been linked to from MeFi?

You mentioned Jew's harp, and trance, so I am honor-bound to bring up J.M. Nasim: The Psychedelic Jew's Harp.

More like didjeridon't, amirite?

Actually, I'm really enjoying this. Thank you. Only slightly disappointed that so far, it has not, in fact, put me in a trance. Master.

I play both didgeridoo and mouth harp and think Airtist is the bee's knees. Good post.

This is one of the best things I've ever heard.

I had no idea that this was exactly what I wanted to hear. But it was.

Has anybody else emailed them to ask how to send money, or shall I?

Fascinating. As an old person, I find beatboxing kind of ridiculous, but in any case this is the finest doo/harp/box group I've ever heard. Thanks for the post, Wolfdog.

Maybe not quite as compatible as drums & tuba, but the jew's harp and didgeridoo do fit really well together.

Ah, the jew's harp! One of the all time great instruments, and I ain't joking. Here's an FPP I did on the humble little metal tongue, many moons ago...

I'll also direct you to some of my own humble efforts with the jaw harp (5 songs and counting...) here at MeFiMusic.
