Fabio Goldaniga (Italy)
Fabio Goldaniga is a didgeridoo player born in Milan, Italy, he started playing in 2012 and soon began traveling around festivals and workshops to expand his skills and knowledge of the instrument and its techniques.
Despite his young career as a didge player and musician, he started teaching didgeridoo in 2014, from base to advanced level, with particular focus on a method to help his students to get indipendent and free-standing in their didgeridoo playing experience, from technique-learning to musical expression.
He’s actually working on his first didgeridoo-solo album and publishing instructional videos on Youtube, helping young players to get a better understanding of the study and practice of the didgeridoo.
He studied and practiced didgeridoo with some of the best musicians around Europe, such as Andrea Ferroni, Carlo Cattano, Marcos Andreu, Dubravko Lapaine, Hans Karlssen, Ilario Vannucchi, Gianni Placido, Ansgar Manuel Stein.
In 2017 he was one of the two winners of the Didjin’Oz didgeridoo contest and played on the stage of Swizzeridoo festival.
Ansgar, a trained interior decorator and graphic-designer, picked up on the didgeridoo in 1993 after visiting a concert of the iconic Aboriginal rock band YOTHU YINDI. Drawing from inspirations of traditional and modern didgeridoo playing alike, Ansgar was not satisfied with being confined to the prevalent esoteric frame-set, so he took his love for science, his nerdy science-fiction obsession, his mechanical skills, his graphic eye and his joy of painting and costume, his admiration of language, his fascination for movement, dance and musical expression, and used all these factors to feed his new-born love for the allegedly simple and yet complex didgeridoo.
Thus he developed an approach unseen before in the scene.
Apart from the musical approach, Ansgar also publishes in the field, is a founding member of and contributor to the German Online Didgeridoo Enyclopedia, and always has an eye on some of the German wikipedia-entries related to the subject.
