potd - what is it?
This guy has been sitting near the train station in Tel Aviv the past few days. Usually I do not have a camera on me, but today for some reason I did, so I snapped the picture.
I have no idea what the instrument he is playing is called. I am not even sure if it can be called a musical instrument. This guy sits there and blows on the instrument. It does not play a tune or any type of music most people are familiar with. Basically it just makes a low, annoying, wavy sound. Maybe one day I will go to the train a few minutes early and ask him what it is called.
As one person said, "This guy looks like he spent one week too many backpacking through India."
Thanks to some Australian readers comments (and my brother, but I have no idea how he would have known this), it seems this instrument is called a didgeridoo.
