Didjeridu decorated with terracotta paint coated in gum or beeswax. Made by Bob Mandubul. Bought MEM for the Education Centre from the A.G. shop.
There are many names for the didjeridu in the different languages spoken by the Aboriginal peoples of northern Australia, including yidaki, bambu, bombo, kambu, papuu, garnbak, illpirra, martba, jiragi, and yiraki. Like all aerophones, the didjeridu produces sound by a column of air passing through it and the material the instrument is made of not particularly adding to this sound.
