Aussies SLAM Canadian rock band after the musician plays a didgeridoo

Australian fans have slammed Canadian rock band Walk Off the Earth for sharing a video of a female band member playing a didgeridoo.

The sacred instrument was developed by Indigenous Australians and, according to traditional belief, may only be played by men.

Indigenous communities encourage non-Indigenous people to treat the didgeridoo with respect given its cultural significance.

Why aren’t women allowed to play the didgeridoo?

Different indigenous communities have different ideas about what will or will not happen to a woman touching the didgeridoo.

Most seem to agree that it is the man’s role to play the most ceremonial instrument.

Some Aboriginal customs believe that women are not allowed to touch or play the didgeridoo as it could lead to infertility.

“You did the one thing you shouldn’t do,” agreed another. “The disrespect towards the didgeridoo,” wrote a third.

‘So you get bombarded in the comments about the didgeridoo and this video is still available?’ another questioned.

“Come on guys you guys are better than this,” one commented.
