Concert review by Katja Ceglar, director of KDK

Druyd, a very unusual and interesting music group from Zagreb, Croatia, performed in the Kulturni dom Krsko (Slovenia) on the 18th of October. The music of Druyd can be quite simply called world music. On one hand, there are several elements in the didgeridoo-guitar-melodica-vocals combination that can be found in different world music styles. However, on the other hand, we can find some parallels even with the funky groove in the rhythm and the sound effects of Du’s didgeridoo. Du, definitely one of the most prolific and amazing didgeridoo players in the world, creates an acoustic environment of different music instruments just by playing his didgeridoo. He gives the rhythm and bass line to Druyd, which from time to time sounds very groovy. And at other times creates an ultra subtle connection to the guitar and vocals. The wide expression of the didgeridoo’s sound is upgraded by great acoustic guitar playing (Yr), occasionally accompanied by melodica. All these elements complement the clear and opened vocals (BlackMary). Druyd performs an amazing and unusually consistent and harmonious sound combination, which – in spite of a trio performing – sounds very rich and unpredictable. The band is very well rehearsed which is why their live acoustic performance is so strong in expression and sensual at the same time. A great concert by Druyd in Kulturni dom Krsko!

  1. A Very Analytical Cosmic Fairy says:

    Dubravko an Yr are incredible! I am also a professional artist, and as such I value constructive honest criticism. I think the synergy between du-didge and the string instruments are very powerful, more than just about anything didge based collaboration I’ve heard. And, I will state that the CONCEPT behind the female vocals is strong, but the execution is bland, overpowering, and detracts heavily from the articulation and depth of most everything else. It gets annoying. As a fairy person myself, I agree with all the lyrics and their symbolic importance, but they are boring, corny, and lack any of the metaphorical richness that the instrumental music suggests.
    I hope this comment brings some clarity to my friends.
