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 a Ḻambiḻpiḻ. This is the instrument used in Numbulwar by the Nunggubuyu. These people have close ties to Groote Eylandt and North East Arnhemland. It is very high pitch and therefore hard to play. This particular instrument is used by the Red Flag Dancers, a group that is famed for its music and dance, and has toured the world. Personally I totally love the Nundhirribala recordings by The Yothu Yindi Foundation.

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