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 2009 Michiel decided to re-invest 1/3 of his annual proceedings as a didgeridoo player/teacher back in to Arnhemland 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!

Jeremy Cloake launched a crowdfunding campaign for B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra a highly respected yiḏaki craftsman and elder of the Dhalwaŋu clan.
At the moment he is being treated for leukemia and not capable of making instruments and providing care for his family. He needs to travel up and down to Darwin to get treatment and this is costing the family a lot of money.

So I was in Italy at the Didjin OZ festival in Forlimpopoli, talking on stage about B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra and the rough times he is going through. And out of the audience came a good old friend, Alessandro Pinnelli, who I met in Arnhemland a few years back. He was willing to help and donated this super sweet yiḏaki by Dhapa Ganambarr. I priced it at € 580,- but normaly instruments like this wil go at € 780 in my shop.

ALL THE MONEY WILL GO TO B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra!

It is a sweet instrument with good acoustics and a super nice trumpet.
Just a manymak mandapul!
