$550

Here is a classic traditional Northeast Arnhem Land style yiḏaki for those, who are looking for a unique instrument for their collection. The instrument has medium to low backpressure, responsive for tongue movements and plays very well. A lightweight didgeridoo with thin walls.

This little gem was sitting in the Yirrkala art centre for a number of years until I noticed, I consider it one of the best catches of this year so far.
Do not miss it!
