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!

Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi

Didiwarr Wunungmurra

  • Key : F# – F#
  • Size: 140 cm
  • Mouthpiece: 2,7 cm
  • Bell: 8,4 cm

I saw Didiwarr walk into the Buku Larrŋgay art centre with his first yiḏaki a few years back. I bought it from him straight away! It is good to see that, after the passing of his father Bruce Wunuŋmurra, he really stepped up!

And his mother Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi, who painted this yiḏaki in ochers, is passing her skills of painting very fine miny’tji on to the next generation aswell!

A really good instrument with nice backpressure. Fast as a bullet and a dup to dream of. Easy to hit and a nice round sound.
A full sound wich is not often heared in F# instruments. Most of the time they sound a bit bright, being strong in the mid frequencies.

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