A superb mago by acclaimed Rembarrnga artist Bob Burruwal. The Rembarrnga are musically aligned with both Central and west Arnhemland. In Central Arnhemland the horn tone is present in the mago playing, where in west Arnhemland it is said to be absent. It is generally said that in central Arnhemland the horn tone is a sustained one. But I have old field recordings from a Rembarrnga man who fiercely fires one dup after the other. It plays really well and has a nice warm and full bodied sound.
This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
