Billy is now using a Burton Yirdaki (Didj), along with his traditional pieces made by Ngongu Ganambarr,
Djalu Gurruwirri and family. Plus a fierce and raspy G yirdaki by Mallee.
Nathan Burton makes high quality and extremely resonant yirdaki, and spent a year plus in the distant past, learning some of his craft from Djalu.
The yirdaki (didj) originated from Arhemland in the Northern Terratories. Djalu Gurruwirri is a senior lawman and custodian of the yirdaki. Click on the picture links to find out more about Nathan Burton & Djalu. Plus Billy's two favourite european yirdaki stores.
