This performance is engaging and will appeal to the older generation as well as adults and the younger generation because of the infusion of contemporary instruments, sounds and rhytms. Culturally this performance is unique because of the additive of the didgeridoo within Jazz music which makes this repertoire important to the Australian legacy in Jazz music. We could call it Australian Jazz.
