Traditional Arnhem Land Yidaki

What defines a Yidaki? Didgeridoo is a non-Aboriginal term for an Aboriginal wind instrument that has numerous Aboriginal names. Prior to European colonisation, the instrument was limited to the Northern parts of Australia, in particular Arnhem Land. Amongst the Yolgnu clans of North East Arnhem Land, yidaki is the generic name for the naturally occurring termite hollowed trunks of young Eucalyptus trees that are cut and shaped into a musical instrument. This name is correctly used for instruments from this region that have been made and decorated solely by Yolgnu people. All other instruments should be called didgeridoos, unless they are made by an Aboriginal person and called by their local Aboriginal name for the instrument.

The yidaki are unique, born from meticulous traditional Aboriginal craftsmanship.

These amazing instruments are the best choice for private collectors.

All these yidaki are made in remote Aboriginal Communities in northern Australia, and we are proud to support the Aboriginal Owners and custodians of the didgeridoo and to be able to help promote these quality authentic instruments.

Here are the selection of traditional Yidaki, hand picked direct from Amhem Land. Top quality by top yidaki makers. Instruments made by Djalu Gurruwiwi and more.
