This fast ripping jazzy piece of music is based around an up-beat playing method developed on the bodhrán (Irish frame drum). Using a particularly heavy ebony two ended stick which was made by the late Dessy Seary of Wicklow, the player creates a fast rolling beat which may be compared to the gallop of a horse. Accompanied by bodhrán played with the hand, a driving percussion makes the perfect foil for the introduction of a distinctive complex didgeridoo style, fast and furious that only this player can generate. The tune was recorded acoustically in one take.
