Bibibak Munuŋgurr yidaki (HLY-91) SOLD


Out of stock

Another great eye-catching instrument from Bibibak! It has a surprisingly high backpressure compared to its mid-range key, that needs to be handled by an experienced player – once you learn it, this yiḏaki becomes a powerful tool! It is a very responsive, fast-player yiḏaki, the toots are easy to hit, and as soon as it warmed up, the sound becomes rich in overtones.
I recommend this instrument for those, who are practising the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land.
