What a find, and the price is more than fair for such a fine yidaki! Malalakpuy Munyarryun is one of the talented and hardworking Munyarryun brothers who live at Dhalinybuy. This young man entered the art malalakpuy munyarryun yidakiworld in 1999 and was entrusted with the right to paint sacred Wangurri imagery and lead Wangurri ritual song by clan elders, Mathulu and Bawurr. Since this time he has produced a quantity of works that show a high caliber of painting skill.
Malalakpuy (pictured at right) is also known for making excellent yidaki, often working in partnership with his brother Bandamul. His yidaki are painted with sacred Wangurri clan designs. The artwork on this particular yidaki also feature a motif of bonba (butterfly) and eucalyptus gum nuts along with aboriginal symbology for water, rain and thunder. There's just a bit of minor wear to the paint in a few spots, but nothing significant at all.

Acquired from a private collection, this very fine yidaki was crafted in 1998 and was sourced directly from Buku-Larrnggay Mulka art center in Yirrkala, Northern Territory, Australia. Crafted from termite hollowed stringybark eucalyptus. The interior bore is very clear and open which increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. Natural mouthpiece sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil).
Soundwise: Concert Quality

The sonic is gruff and dirty––a traditional acoustic. VERY LOUD and POWERFUL! The first trumpet toot is super stable making it easy to incorporate into rhythms. This yidaki responds quickly to the slightest pressure changes with excellent clarity and volume. It's a highly rewarding player of traditional hard tongue technique with blunt response. Solid, direct, complex, edgy with the sound close to one of the instruments Larry Gurruwiwi plays on the famous "Djalu Teaches Yidaki" CD." Said by the artist to be appropriate for use in ceremony. This vintage instrument will be an outstanding addition to even the most robust yidaki quiver (or to get one started)!

This is an heirloom quality artifact and a highly collectable instrument. Excellent value for its sound quality, age-seasoned timber, and provenance. We suspect that it's won't last long around here very long
, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Includes Certificate of Authenticity, care guide and playing guide.
