Didgeridoo Concerto is an impressive 51 minutes of solo didgeridoo playing by musician Mark Atkins — reputedly Australia's leading Aboriginal didgeridoo player.

The orchestra of this "concerto" is made up of the sounds of nature: the wind, the rain, a dog barking and insects. The result is the rather soothing music of rhythmic didgeridoo backed by rainforest sounds and water. In this sense it is similar to the nature relaxing tapes that are popular at present. The CD is tailored to didgeridoo fans, however, and some may find the music a little monotonous.
