A simple but great instrument from one of the most well-known prominent Yolŋu artists of Australia (see Djakapurra’s bio linked in).
Even though many players and customers are looking for ‘something special and unique’, I do like to keep bringing simple and basic yiḏaki into the stock since I have a high appreciation of these instruments – proper bush yiḏaki with high cultural integrity and sound favoured by Yolŋu songmen and players. A well-balanced instrument with medium backpressure and warm sound; quite responsive to tongue movements and suitable to play fast rhythms after a little warm up. I recommend this instruments for beginners for both contemporary and traditional.
