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 awesome yiḏaki cut by Djalu Gurruwiwi and painted by M*rrw*tŋ* Munyarryun. It was made for their 2009 European tour. The painting represents the relationship between the Warramiri and the Waŋuri. For a part of this tour I took care, with my brother, of the transport.
It sounds pretty rough. Interresting is the first ‘toot’. Which is one full tone below the fundamental.

This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
