The Quinta Eventos farm, in Santo Estevão, Tavira, will be the stage, between August 29th and September 1st, of the 15th edition of FATT – Didgeridoo Festival, which until last year was held in Ameixial, Loulé .
The event is organized by the Portuguese Didgeridoo Association (APD) and has several partners.
The festival, which distinguishes itself by making known the Australian Aboriginal culture has a diverse range of national and international artists.
During the day, participants can participate in the usual workshops on playing and building didgeridoo, African dance, yoga and many others.
With little kids in mind, the organization has created FATT KIDS, a space entirely dedicated to children, where youngsters can learn how to make musical instruments by recycling everyday materials.
The highlight of this edition will be the display of yidaki (didgeridoos) from the northern Australian territory. The collection belongs to MT-Yidaki, who is dedicated to the study of original and authentic instruments from Arnhem Land (Australia), many of them being rare and ceremonial instruments of the Aboriginal people.
In addition, the event also has didgeridoo masterclasses, palettes and documentaries.
During the night, FATT has concerts dedicated to didgeridoo and world songs. Djang Dharma (Spain), Colas Tastu (France), Tiago Francisquinho (Portugal) projects will take place on August 29; MT-Yidaki (Netherlands), Sedaa (Mongolia and Iran) and the Porto OliveTree Dance, on August 30; and the Portuguese Moksha Sound Journey, followed by Goodoo (Spain) and Markusen (Spain) on the 31st.
