It just meanders infinitely, back and forth, across the land and into the sea along the songlines that tell it. Nobody is certain when Djalu – a spiritual keeper and master craftsman of the yirdaki (didgeridoo) as well as one of its most globally respected players – was born. Ask Djalu where he came into the world and he’ll nominate the Methodist mission at Milingimbi Island in the Arafura Sea off the coast of Arnhem Land.
