About Julian Silburn
Julian Silburn has devoted his life to sound healing and is known for his work nationally and internationally. Julian has learned yidaki (didjeridu), directly from aboriginal people around Australia including Arnhemland (where the yidaki originates), and has been playing for more than 20 years. He mainly uses the instrument in its traditional way for healing and ceremony and has also performed in a contemporary way in Australia, Europe, USA and Canada collaborating with many world musicians and varied music genres.
There is another side to Julian that is less known and that his knowledge of earth wisdoms and healing ceremonies which he has been a part of over the last two decades having collaborated several times with several prominent elders from Perth, Central Desert, Uluru and from Arnhemland. Julian has been given permission and blessing to play the didjeridu and to use it for healing here on Whadjuk Noongar land by senior elders and has a deep respect for their incredibly rich culture and traditions.
In 1997 he was invited by an aboriginal artist to live and work with aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. This opportunity greatly deepened his knowledge of aboriginal art, stories, culture, healing, ceremonial music and earth wisdoms.
During this time he learned from several elders who are masters of the yidaki and mago and through his association was was adopted by an Arnhemland family that has a direct lineage to the yidaki and mago (didjeridu), which has been played for thousands of years.
