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!

Sometimes you will hear Yolŋu talk about bass and lead yiḏaki.
This is a bass yiḏaki!
It will shake the room but still has got plenty of definition in the higher range so you will be able to put proper yiḏaki articulation in the sound.

Fairly lightweight for such a big stick.
Warm and soothing sound but with enough uhmpf to play solid beats.
Personally I would open up the mouthpiece a bit. Since my prefered size is 30mm. There is enough wood to do this without any problem.

Allround yiḏaki. It is good player for contemporary style and when you want to go deeper in the trad. style.

Since 2020, Michiel is compensating Co2 emmisions for all transport of his yiḏaki shipments.
