Lena Yarinkura mago (HLM-33) SOLD

$1050

Out of stock

An excellent ‘gun’ coming under the name of Bob Burruwal’s wife. Lena is a prominent artist of the Maningrida region, she often creates artworks in collaboration with her husband and family. This stick reminds me instruments made by Bob in the ‘old days’: open bore, full-bodied resonant sound, medium, well-balanced backpressure. Once this stick warmed up, you cannot stop playing it, amazing acoustics, volume and power. Highly recommended for traditional players.
