MT-Yidaki Shop

Yiḏaki and mago are the original didgeridoo’s played by aboriginal people in the northern part of the Northern Territory, mainly in Arnhemland. These very diverse groups of people have these instruments in their culture since many generations.

Michiel's aim is to bring you high quality yiḏaki and mago of the highest cultural integrity. All the instruments are hand selected and made by traditional people on traditional land.

Since 2011 Michiel decided to re-invest a part of his annual proceedings as a didgeridoo player/teacher back in to Arnhem land culture. Which led to a shop full of instruments selected for their playability.

If you are looking for something particular feel free to drop a line and he will do his best to source it for you!

60’s Maningrida mago

60's Maningrida mago

  • Key : G
  • Size: 104,5cm
  • Mouthpiece: 3,5cm
  • Bell: 2,5cm

Collected in the 1960’s probably in the Maningrida area, and acquired in 2003. By the looks of it this was not made for commercial reasons. The mouthpiece is roughly chiseled out with something like a knife. The bell-end is very small but it still produces a nice and very powerful sound.

This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
