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!

A rather modest sounding instrument by Didiwarr and his mother Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi.
Because of the backpressure being medium, this yiḏaki enables you to really ‘push and pull’.
The toot is a bit higher than the fundamental but this is normal for alot of traditional instruments, where the horn note is used for signalling.
The painting, by Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi, depicts Wititj the ancesteral Rainbow Serpent.

A great stick for those who like that typical Arnhemland sound.

I remember Didiwarr when he walked in, at community based art centre Buku Larrŋgay Mulka, with his first commercially made instrument together with his father, the late B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra.
I bought it straight away.
It is good to see Didiwarr stepped up and continues making instruments of the highest cultural integrity, like his famous father.
