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!

I am forunate to say I spent quite a few days out bush with Bibibak. And I like his style of sticks! For my (contemporary) performances I mainly use other instruments but when I am talking trad. I often grab one of his sticks. In traditional Buŋgull the main purpose of the yiḏaki is to accompany the dancers. That means that it has to be bright and gritty so the dancers can easly hear the rythm that is played. Also the horntone needs to be bright since a lot of signals in Yolŋu song and dance are made trhough the sound of the yiḏaki. This particular instrument is very well suited for this job and if your aim is to study and understand Yolŋu music than this is a great instrument for you!
