Wapurpurr Wunuŋmurra yidaki (HLY-205) SOLD


Out of stock

Including a copy of the Waṉḏawuy – Mulka Manikay Archives CD

A unique instrument recommended for collectors who look for something different.
Wapurpurr is one of my favourite yiḏaki makers, who live in Waṉḏawuy outstation, about 2.5 hours drive from Yirrkala. He is a ceremonial player, that is clearly reflected in his instruments.
This didgeridoo has an open bore, medium backpressure, full-bodied sound with rick acoustics.
What makes this instrument special is the artwork that is carved and painted with natural pigments, it depicts two snakes visually moving along the body of the instrument – stunning effect, very well done Wapurpurr! We recommend this rare artwork for collectors.
We hope, that the future owner will enjoy listening to the Mulka Manikay Archives Waṉḏawuy recording that accompanies the instrument, featuring Wapurpurr on yiḏaki.
