Description: Many of our customers are interested in buying a natural instrument from Master Djalu’ – here it is one! The aperture along the top of the instrument is confined, therefore the backpressure is quite high, that can be challenging for many players. I always encourage customers to challenge their skills, and purchase an instrument like this, since it will help to understand the dynamics of a highly-charged yiḏaki – instead of playing fast, try slow rhythms and melodic beats.
This instrument is very responsive, the ‘dups’ are easy to hit, the sound has a very high resonance with plenty of overtones.
This yiḏaki is a good deal for those, who are looking for something different to update their stock.
