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!

Larrtjaŋa Gurruwiwi ceremonial yiḏaki

Larrtjaŋa Gurruwiwi

  • Key : F# – A
  • Size: 127,5cm
  • Mouthpiece: 3,1cm
  • Bell: 10cm

Now this is what i personally like! An instrument wich has been the personal favorite of Larrtjaŋa Gurruwiwi. The sand of the cermonial grounds is still in the bell of this yiḏaki! A very nice and open instrument with very clear acoustics but still enough bass. The vocal transition is easy and unlike most of the higher pitched instrument not to throaty. The first trumpet is quite high and clear but this is a characteristic wich is preferd in Yolŋu ceremony since most of the instrumental signals are made with the ‘ dup’.

Dhapirrk yiḏaki!!! .
