Buwathay Munyarryun (HLY-123) SOLD


Out of stock

A great instrument with a slim body and sharp sound. Due to its high backpressure, I recommend this instrument for players who want to challenge their playing style, and learn more about instruments with high pressure. Suitable for fast playing!
The painting is a sacred Waŋurri clan design, depicts mangrove worms (latjin), painted with natural ochre. The maker, Buwathay Munyarryun is a senior lawman, he is the songman on the Mulka Archives – Yilan recording, accompanied on yiḏaki by Bibibak Munuŋgurr.
