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!

Considering the Marrdapa background of the artist this instrument should be classified as an yidaki, but it’s sound and play characteristics are more like a mago… Such cross-over instruments you will find more often in his part of the region. So the first trumpet is not easy to hit. But if you want to refine your mago skills (and some Yolŋu styles) I can recommend this instrument!

There is a repair in the upper part of the instrument. But I’m convinced that if you start playing your instrument carefully that it is definitely going to hold.

Paddy Fordham was an highly acclaimed Rembarrnga artist. You can find his paintings and sculptures in galleries and musea all over the world. Didgeridoos by this great man are extremely rare. The painting is in acrylics and the instrument is sealed on the outside with wood glue. It plays really sweet for an mago of this size. A nice, full bodied drone with clear horn note. To get an idea in what style this instrument is played traditionally you should check “Arnhemland Popular Classics”. A field recording from the 60’s with Paddy Fordham Wanyburrwanga on didgeridoo. This instrument is acquired in Alice Springs 2002.

Dhaḏalal

A special type of ritual  yiḏaki for the Yirritja moiety. Nowadays it is a public instrument that has been brought out in the open at the Garma in 2004.
It’s use is to call for funeral ceremonie by blowing a series of long sustained trumpet notes.
A typical Dhaḏalal also has string with kangaroobones attached. But Balku Wunuŋumurra made this specific  instrument without. According to him it is still a Dhaḏalal yiḏaki though. He just decided to leave out the very powerfull and sacred parts…

The lorrikeet feathers however underline the sacredness of this yiḏaki.

It is very rare that an instrument like this is avaible on the commercial market.
Not an instrument to use on a rockstage but more for a private collector that appreciates cultural authenticity.

It plays like a typical yiḏaki. High backpressure. Overall good but a bit course accoustics and an easy to hit trumpet note!

She had numerous exebitions and her work is held in some major art collections.
There are only 2 yiḏaki that I know of that are painted with this Yiki design.
The design, in natural ochres, depicts the Macasan knifes.

Dhapa needs no further introduction in the international yiḏaki scene. His work is of a constant quality. This particular yiḏaki is no exception. Clear acoustics, a nice and round dup and a very fine and even finnish.

A well used instrument from the Dhalinybuy community. Completly covered in duct-tape. A practice that is used by Yolŋu to repair cracks and make sure that the instrument always plays when it is needed. This is what a genuine yiḏaki looks like.
The mouthpiece is a bit sharp but that actually helps with making a good seal when you push this yiḏaki to it’s limits. I have noticed that a lot of people that want to play trad. style from North-East Arnhemland look for instruments that are really easy to play. Therefor I carry a lot of instruments in my shop that suit both contemporary aswell as traditional players. But some yiḏaki require a bit of push, study and practice to get to the full potential of that particular instrument.

So this is one of those instruments that will help you to get to the real trad. flavour!

A realy nice yiḏaki by Djul’djul’ and her family!
This instrument has an open bore which results in a easy to handle, lightweight instrument.
The overal acoutics on this yiḏaki a very well balanced.
A very clear sound with enough bass.
The toot is nice and round and easy to hit.

The painting, in natural ochres, depicts Wititj’ the ancestral Rainbow serpent. A strong totem of the Galpu clan.

This particular yiḏaki is suitable for both contemporary as well as traditional music.
An alrounder!

  • Bell: 6,5 cm

A rather modest sounding instrument by Didiwarr and his mother Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi.
Because of the backpressure being medium, this yiḏaki enables you to really ‘push and pull’.
The toot is a bit higher than the fundamental but this is normal for alot of traditional instruments, where the horn note is used for signalling.
The painting, by Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi, depicts Wititj the ancesteral Rainbow Serpent.

A great stick for those who like that typical Arnhemland sound.

I remember Didiwarr when he walked in, at community based art centre Buku Larrŋgay Mulka, with his first commercially made instrument together with his father, the late B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra.
I bought it straight away.
It is good to see Didiwarr stepped up and continues making instruments of the highest cultural integrity, like his famous father.

A great F – F by legendary yiḏaki expert Djalu Gurruwiwi.
A bit dirty and mysterious in sound.
But it plays like a dream!
Nice balance in acoustics. Easy toot. And a good speed to it.
The finnish of this yiḏaki is a bit rough. It looks like it was made only with a machette.
Also the painting, in ochers, is rough. But, for me, it has a nice and authentic feel to it.
There are two small, black beeswax, repairs at the mouthpiece. But I don’t think they will cause any problem.

Since a few years now, Marikuku Wirrpanda works closely together with Dhapa Ganambarr.
This venture results in top quality yiḏaki. In Arhemland, Marikuku is in demand as a ceremonial yiḏaki player for the Dhuḏi-Djapu clan.


This yiḏaki is a good example of his outstanding work!
Rich in overtones, a very strong and powerfull sound. Great backpresurre and a perfect interfall between drone and dup!
It’s a beast that was favorite to Buku Larrŋgay staff member, Djuwakan #2 Marika who was reluctant to let it go.


I played this yiḏaki in my live show at the 2019 FATT Festival in Tavira, Portugal.

Okay one more time: Dhapa Ganambarr!!!

A solid D# with a lot of funk to it. There is a lot off power in this stick. Very nice and rich acoustics. With an easy to hit and round first trumpet note.
Dhapa is not only one of the most cosistent yiḏaki crafters but he’s a real wood worker as well.
All of his yiḏaki are made with a lot of love for the shape of the tree and he spents hours in shaping it so that the walls are evenly thick.
Wich results in very stable and powerfull instruments.
You will need to come over and try this one!!!

I played this yiḏaki at my concert at Swisseridoo in 2017.
And at my concert at FATT Festival in Portugal 2019.
