“Gapanbulu is the grandson of Yothu Yindi lead singer Mandawuy Yunupiŋu, and for several years was the yiḏaki player with the band. As such, he has performed everywhere from small communities in Arnhem land to major events all over the world.
Being an excellent yiḏaki player, he is able to identify and craft top quality instruments. The finished quality of his work shows his attention to detail and understanding of what the non-Aboriginal didjeridu market prefer. His yiḏaki often have exceptional playing characteristics which are now well know by didjeridu musicians and collectors world-wide.” Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Art Centre
