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!

Dhapa Ganambarr & Duwarrwarr Marika

Dhapa Ganambarr

  • Key : D – F
  • Size: 155,5 cm
  • Mouthpiece: 3,2cm
  • Bell: 8,6 cm

This is what happens when to major artists work together!
Duwarrwarr is a famous senior artist from the Rirratjingu clan. She was born c- 1946 as a daughter of well-known clan leader Mawalan Marika and sister to Wandjuk, Bayŋul and Banduk Marika.
She had numerous exebitions and her work is held in some major art collections.
There are only 2 yiḏaki that I know of that are painted with this Yiki design.
The design, in natural ochres, depicts the Macasan knifes.

Dhapa needs no further introduction in the international yiḏaki scene. His work is of a constant quality. This particular yiḏaki is no exception. Clear acoustics, a nice and round dup and a very fine and even finnish.

With this yiḏaki you don’t only buy a topnotch musical instrument but also a great art piece by one of the most important Yolŋu artists of this time!
