Maker: David Brian
Area of origin: Ankabadbirri outstation, North-Central Arnhem Land

Description: We recommend this instrument for those, who are looking for a special item to update their collection. Due to the large internal aperture, the backpressure in this mago is quite low, therefore the player needs to learn self control not to ‘overblow’ the instrument and kill the tune. The sound is extremely rich and has lots of harmonics, excellent bass, volume and resonance.
The artwork is painted with natural pigments, the details of the painting is stunning. The painting depicts dilly bag, or ‘Kunmadj’ in Rembarrnga, that is the maker’s traditional language. This traditional didgeridoo is another great work from David Brian, we are excited to have it in our stock!
