A high-pitched yiḏaki from Djalu; the body of the instrument is quite short compared to the larger sticks favoured by Old Man. The backpressure is in the higher range, well balanced and urges the player to play fast rhythms. The instrument is responsive to tongue and lip movements, and the transition to the ‘dups’ is easy. A great catch to practice traditional style!
