Bought in September 2007 via Paride Russo, a superb didgeplayer, a real connoisseur of the Yidaki (traditional North East Arnhem Land - NEAL - didgeridoos) and administrator of the site.


It is a traditional instrument NEAL, made by Djalu Gurruwiwi.


This instrument has a really powerful, rugged, aggressive sound. Horn tones and related techniques are very easy too play with it. Moreover, is an extremely versatile instrument, good for playing both in traditional NEAL and contemporary styles. Up today, I couldn't find a single fault in this instrument.


My First Djalu's fundamental is a F/F-sharp. Its first toot is a F-sharp. Next are a few audio samples of My First Djalu.
