Napunda Marawili yiḏaki F#/A (HLY-388) SOLD


Out of stock

A fast and lightweight yiḏaki with high backpressure, tight and natural aperture, and high-pitched sound. The instrument is responsive to lip movements, that makes this short and tiny stick versatile – however the player needs a good grasp and control to be able to play this ‘electric’ didgeridoo. A great catch for anyone who is looking for an easy-to-handle, super-fast yiḏaki.
