Marikuku Wirrpanda ceremonial yiḏaki G/G# (HLY-317) SOLD


Out of stock

Here is a good opportunity for yiḏaki-nerds: a used ceremonial instrument from Marikuku with great playing characteristics. The chamber is tight at the top and opens up towards the bell (look at the shape of this instrument!), the dups are really easy to hit and sound amazing; the volume is high, the instrument responds well and does whatever the players wishes to hear. It is a heavily used stick, the timber had to cope with a lot and washed through many times. The sound currently is quite dry, that lights up with some water inside.
The instrument is cracked at the bell, that is held together with silver duct tape. This yiḏaki is a great example of didgeridoos favoured by Yolŋu ceremonial players nowadays, so we recommend it for collectors who want to get a hold of a unique instrument.
