"Mimi Spirit Path"
Concert Quality Didgeridoo
Painted by Kenny Wark (Munungurr aboriginal)Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below! Kenny Wark Yungamulwoi painted this LOUD, CONCERT QUALITY didgeridoo that has a BIG 4.25" bell on the bottom end. The artwork features a Mimi Spirit and water bird motif. Kenny (pictured at right)
was born around 1947 near the mouth of the Roper River in East Arnhem
Land, where the river meets the Gulf of Carpentaria. This area is known as Dhuruputbi and the language is Balummumu/Djapu and his tribe is the Munungurr. Ken
received no formal education and lived in isolation in this area all of
his young life until the family moved to the nearest major town of
Katherine. This lack of contact with "white civilization" in his
formative years shows through in his paintings. He depicts in his
paintings subjects which are often associated with hunting and gathering
activities such as bush foods, birds, animals and reptiles. He paints
in the so called X-Ray style, with fine cross hatching (raark)
associated with Arnhem Land Bark Paintings.
Ken says his father and
grandfather (Doonji) have had the biggest influence on his work. From a
young age Ken watched these two people paint and learnt from them the Dreamtime tales that their paintings conveyed. In later years Ken
has been influenced by David Blanasi (deceased) and George Jungawanga,
(Left Hand George) in his work. Through his art, Ken hopes to heighten
the awareness of Aboriginal Art in the community at large. He also hopes
his success as a painter will influence his descendants to emulate him.This handsome vintage didgeridoo, circa 2002, was acquired from a fellow didgeridoo importer and has never been privately owned or played regularly. The timber is well age-seasoned with no signs of repair or refinish ever needed. It shows no wear and looks like it did the day it was originally finished! This ripper didgeridoo was crafted from termite hollowed
interior bore is very clear and open which increases volume, harmonics,
and clarity of tone. A semi gloss finish protects the wood and artwork from
the elements. Fitted with an organic beeswax mouthpiece sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). The mouthpiece can easily be adjusted to fit you perfectly.
Instructions included, no worries.
Soundwise: Concert Quality
Most excellent sound and playability with a sweet, warm, live acoustic. EXTRAORDINARY HARMONIC RESONANCE, good bass frequencies and a very agreeable pitch for playing moderate to faster riddims. This didge is gonna rumble your jungle, bro, and at a very fair price for this quality! It easily responds to subtle changes in pressure, mouth shape, and vocals, effortlessly gleaming from crickety chirps to tiki drums. Sassy, biting, twangy response to tongued riddims. It has a tapered bore that offers up deadly tonal characteristics and it's SO easy to play. Dramatic pitch bend from D# down to C# (by dropping your jaw a bit as you play). Four quick horn toots, all warm against the drone. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
Includes Certificate of Authenticity, care guide and playing guide.
