Wow! Top stick from Marikuku Wirrpanda.
A fast and tight instrument that challenges you to try all your rhythms at top speed.
If you play with less pressure, the drone can still be kept well balanced.
He has that real Arnhemland growl! But has enough bass. The more modern rhythms also come into their own because of this.
The trumpet note is mouth watering, so easy.
There are a few repairs in the center of the instrument. But these are well executed and are not likely to cause a problem.
There is also a surface painted with red ocher. Clearly nothing came of the plan to paint it further 😉
