The didjeridu is the iconic sound of Australia. From a stringy bark forest in Arnhem Land, to the concert halls of Europe, the sound of yidaki (didjeridu) speaks of the landscapes and cultures of Australia and its First People. Yet the instrument’s cultural foundations, contemporary meanings and unique musical qualities are poorly understood.

A collaboration between the South Australian Museum and the Yolngu people, this special exhibition explores yidaki through sound, story, moving image and rarely seen treasures from the South Australian Museum’s collection.
