The didgeridoo is a wind instrument of the Aborigines of northern Australia. "Didgeridoo" is considered to be an onomatopoetic word of Western invention, however "yirdaki", also sometimes spelt "yidaki", refers to the specific type of instrument made and used by the Yolngu people of north-east Arnhem Land. The instrument is traditionally made from living Eucalyptus trees, which have had their interiors hollowed out by termites. It is sometimes played as a solo instrument for recreational purposes, though more usually it accompanies dancing and singing in ceremonial rituals.
