Ŋuluwurr #2 Yunupiŋu yiḏaki Eb/F#(HLY-443) SOLD

$700

Out of stock

A classic traditional yiḏaki from the remote Birany Birany homeland in Northeast Arnhem Land. The body of the instrument is quite slim and lightweight, the sound resonates similar to instruments you can hear on old recordings, excellent instrument to practice the ‘growling’ tone. The backpressure is medium, the transition between the drone and toot is easy, the dups sound great. I recommend this instruments for traditional players and art collectors.
