• A short, highly-charged mako from Maningrida. Due to the high backpressure and the short length, this instruments needs a player with good lung-capacity. What I love about this little, lightweight stick is its electric sound and superb acoustics. Alex Brown is a carver who makes wood sculptures and work as an artist under the Mningrida Art Centre. This is the first mako we have seen from Alex, so we hope he will create more instruments that we can promote in the future.

  • A superb yiḏaki from Marikuku for those players, who are looking for a highly-charged, versatile yiḏaki to practice the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land. Despite the high backpressure it is an easy-to-play stick with sharp acoustics, responsive to tongue movements, the transition between the drone and toot is smooth - the drone plays below the drone, that is rare and sound pretty amazing. A unique find, do not miss it!

  • Many of our customers are interested in buying a natural instrument from Master Djalu’ – here it is one! The aperture along the top of the instrument is confined, therefore the backpressure is quite high, that can be challenging for many players. I always encourage customers to challenge their skills, and purchase an instrument like this, since it will help to understand the dynamics of a highly-charged yiḏaki – instead of playing fast, try slow rhythms and melodic beats. This instrument is very responsive, the ‘dups’ are easy to hit, the sound has a very high resonance with plenty of overtones. This yiḏaki is a good deal for those, who are looking for something different to update their stock.
