Description: We were very happy to put this instrument into our stock, since the two artists who made it are the close family of a greatly missed legend, Mr B. Wunuŋmurra. Didiwarr has learned his skills from his father, and follows his steps to make good quality traditional instruments. The design might be recognised by many of you, it is painted by Djul’djul’ who was working alongside of her husband for decades.
We would rate this yiḏaki as an average player. The aperture is quite open along the body of the instrument, slightly opens up towards the bottom, therefore the backpressure is medium to low. The sound is warm, has a good bass and plenty of overtones once the instrument warms up. We recommend this great didgeridoo for those contemporary players, who would like to get a good quality traditional instrument for a good price.
