Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yiḏaki D/F# (HLY-331) SOLD

$1600

Out of stock

Another thunderous yiḏaki straight from Djalu’s business for those collectors, who are looking for those long resonators. An easy to play instrument with good playing qualities, nice transition between the drone and toot and medium to low backpressure, so do not expect this stick to deliver fast rhythms. The large bell and solid wall provides the resonance you are looking for in big gun like this.
The painting depict ḏatham or water lily tubes, a plant-based bushfood flavoured by Yolŋu.
