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!

Ŋoŋu Ganambarr has long been known for the quality of his instruments.
And this is a typical Ŋoŋu Ganambarr yiḏaki. A stable, slightly dry instrument with easy toot. The drone is very stable and direct. If you would oil it, it will be a little less dry, but personally I do like that dry sound.
The painting is special!
This yiḏaki is significant, not only as a musical instrument, but also because it is painted with Daṯiwuy clan miny’tji, a sacred design that belongs to his clan. The design denotes ‘ganu’ the muddied water stirred by the currents and tides that are made by the ancestral shark ‘mana’ thrashing its tail.

100% cultural authenticity and a pretty amazing yiḏaki!
