Marikuku Wirrpanda yidaki (HLY-226) SOLD


Out of stock

An excellent yiḏaki from Marikuku, painted with natural pigments. The backpressure is medium, therefore the instrument is easy to play; the dups sound really great and compliment the rich acoustics of the instrument. I recommend this instrument for both art collectors and yiḏaki players who look for instruments with high cultural integrity.
