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 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!
