Not a yiḏaki but worth listing on this part of the website since it has been used and praised for its playing characteristics by Djalu Gurruwiwi and M*lk*yŋ* Munuŋgurr amongst others. It is generally accepted that the difference between a didgeridoo and a yiḏaki is determent by its origin. It does not say anything about quality. Didgeridoo is the term for any ‘didgeridoo-like’ instrument where yiḏaki should only be used for an instrument that is been cut by Yolŋu, on Yolŋu land.
I bought this stick in 1998 and it has been my main stick ever since. I took it with me to Togo (Africa), Russia and almost all of Europe. When I took it with me to North East Arnhemland, both Djalu and M*lk*yŋ* used it during the intense Buŋgul sessions at night. Djalu even borrowed it for 2 weeks after the Garma and was reluctant to give it back. It has also been played on stage by contemporary didgeridoo players like Mark Atkins, Si Mullumby and Markus Meurer. Millions of people saw and heard the sound of this instrument since it has been on television in the Netherlands, Australia and Togo.
