Djalu is well renowned throughout the world as 'the best' yidaki craftsman of our time! Djalu's yidaki are revered for their exceptional qualities and was the instrument of choice for the famous Yothu Yindi band.
Hundreds of people have travelled to Arnhem Land to learn from Djalu privately and he has also led the yidaki Master Class at the Garma Festival every year since its inception.
Djalu is also distinguished from other yidaki makers in that his bark paintings are not only held in major museums and collections in Australia but also around the world.
It is often said that Djalu remarks how he blows his spirit into each instrument he makes and sends the spirit out around the world to spread the power of the yidaki.
Djalu is highly respected amongst his people for his prominence as a yidaki master, a talented artist and as a ceremonial leader and senior lawman for the Gälpu clan.
