Randin Graves is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and one of the world's leading non-Aboriginal exponents of the Australian didjeridu. He has played with diverse musicians from classical chamber ensembles to Aboriginal elders and has given presentations on the instrument everywhere from United States elementary schools to the National Museum of Australia.

His CDs have been played on every continent, including Antarctica. As an Australian-American Fulbright scholar, dual citizen and manager of the esteemed Buku-Larrnggay Mulka art centre in the remote Aboriginal township of Yirrkala from 2004-2009, Randin was appointed as an ambassador of the instrument and its culture by two governments and a council of Aboriginal elders.

And so begins a 1,000 mile road trip from the Pacific Coast of Mexico through the colorful streets of Tijuana to the climactic scene at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay
