Yinipirri Ŋurruwuthun yidaki (HLY-250) SOLD


Out of stock

A top-traditional stick from a small homeland of Rurraŋala, about 3 hours drive from Yirrkala. A short, highly-charged instrument with superb playing and sound characteristics: the backpressure is high and well-balanced, the toots are easy to hit and sound really good, the sound is rich in high-range tones that can be further amplified by using throat-sounds during playing. Another classic ‘bush yiḏaki’ with natural bore and appearance. I highly recommend this excellent instrument for those players, who are following the traditional playing styles.
