When it comes to the art of making a yidaki (didgeridoo), Djalu Gurruwiwi of the Galpu clan in the Northern Territory of Australia is widely regarded as the best there is. Rising to International fame after making all the didgeridoos that the band “Yothu Yindi” recorded and toured with in the late 80’s, Djalu has continued to design and shape his instruments and they are now sought after around the world. He has a passion to spread the music and message of the yidaki and that of the aboriginal people and does so, not only as a world famous musician and artist, but as a respected elder. Join TERRA and meet Djalu at his home in the Gove Peninsula where he shows us the amazing art of “Making a Yidaki.”
