When cut and made in 2009 Djalu told me that the sound of this particular instrument represents the thunder or Baywarra. He also told me that this instrument should be referred to as a Djuŋgirriny’ .
Djuŋgirriny’ is one of the yiḏaki of which Djalu is the custodian. The story of this instrument took place on a Galpu beach and the painting, by Djalu, on this yidaki represents the different waters that occur in that area. It is generally accepted that the Galpu own the creation story for the Dhuwa yiḏaki, Djuŋgirriny’. This is also the type of instrument that Djalu can play with healing intend.
This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
