Marikuku recently introduced a new design consolidating carving with painting, and delivered a series of stunning yiḏaki – here is another example of his works. Apart from the appealing new look, this instrument has superb playing characteristics: balanced backpressure, rich acoustics and easy transition between the drone and toot. Yolŋu treated this instrument with special appreciation in the art centre, so I recommend this instrument for traditional-fans who are looking for classic Yolŋu-style instruments.
