A well used instrument from the Dhalinybuy community. Completly covered in duct-tape. A practice that is used by Yolŋu to repair cracks and make sure that the instrument always plays when it is needed. This is what a genuine yiḏaki looks like.
The mouthpiece is a bit sharp but that actually helps with making a good seal when you push this yiḏaki to it’s limits. I have noticed that a lot of people that want to play trad. style from North-East Arnhemland look for instruments that are really easy to play. Therefor I carry a lot of instruments in my shop that suit both contemporary aswell as traditional players. But some yiḏaki require a bit of push, study and practice to get to the full potential of that particular instrument.
So this is one of those instruments that will help you to get to the real trad. flavour!
