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!

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.
