A very nice yiḏaki from Yaŋarryaŋarr Munyarryun.
I've kept it in my private collection since 2014, but sometimes it's time to let things go.
It is a very thin and feather-light instrument.
But there is secretly a decent fat sound in it.
When I was in the art center Buku Larrnŋay Mulka in Yirrkala in 2014, a boy suddenly walked in looking for a yiḏaki. At that time a funeral (bappurru) was in progress and Marrḏapa clan leader Djambawa Marrawili asked for an instrument. After trying some sticks, he chose this instrument.
A few days later it came back with some traces of use and white clay (Gapan) around the mouthpiece.
And super stick of the highest possible cultural integrity!
