Djul’djul is a senior artist, the wife of the legendary yiḏaki maker B.Wunuŋmurra who passed a few years ago. Djul’djul was heavily involved in the yiḏaki business, painting the instruments made by her late husband, so probably many of you are familiar with her work.
As Djul’djul mentioned, this particular instrument was made by one of her young grandsons, and she completed it with this simple but great looking artwork. The instrument has quite confined chamber along the top-section, therefore the backpressure is high but well balanced; the instrument plays fast, responsive to tongue and lip movements, and has a great transition between the drone and toot. The instrument has solid walls, but due to its short length, it is lightweight. I recommend this excellent yiḏaki for traditional fans.
