Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki (HLY-264)

$700

Out of stock

An extremely fast and versatile yiḏaki from Djalu’s backyard from Birritjimi. Super responsive: sensitive to cheek, lips and tongue movements, the transition between the drone and the toot/dups is easy and fun to play. The sound is rich in overtones and has a good volume. I recommend this instrument for traditional players who are looking for a simple, easy to handle stick to practice fast rhythms. Collectors might also wish to note that this instrument is made of whoollybutt (Darwin Woollybutt/Eucalyptus miniata), that is an unusual material for yiḏaki.
