Balku Wunuŋmurra (HLY-121) SOLD


Out of stock

A great a versatile stick from one of the most famous makers of Northeast Arnhem Land. Since Mr B. Wunuŋmurra  passed away recently, this is one of the last opportunities to purchase an instrument made by him.
After the instrument and its player warmed up, its sound is full of life, rich in low and high overtones; easy to play, responsive to every movements of the lips and tongue, the toot is easy to hit, suitable for fast playing.
Beautiful shape and painting, I recommend this yiḏaki for traditional players and/or collectors.
