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!

Napurrawuy doesn’t make that many instruments. And when he worked thisone he only used a saw and a machete. Result: a rustic instrument without chiselling, straight from the bush. To top that of, the instrument is painted with traditional ochre’s. The painting depicts a Dhalwaŋu story about fresh water in the river mouth. The instrument plays subtle and requires precision. But once you have control over this instrument it can handle everything. Great sound and easy toot!

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