Description: A very ‘slow-player’ instrument with deep, relaxed sound from Maningrida, North-Central Arnhem Land. The walls are quite thick all the way along the body, that’s why it’s a heavy stick. I had to spend some time to find the sound I was looking for in this instrument, since the play-ability is unbalanced and the backpressure is low. A very slow-moving stick with good bass and overtones after a few minutes of playing.
The painting depicts ceremonial body pendants.
