    Clapstick Set

    Clap Sticks are a traditional percussive instrument used for ceremony, social dancing, making music and to educate through storytelling. As for many traditional tools, they can serve more than one purpose, like also being used to dig for yams.

    With the techniques passed down from his family, Russell Yilamara hand paints each set of our clapsticks using traditional Arnhem Land styles such as x-ray and rarrking and ochre colours. Not only can these instruments be used for a percussive instrument, but also as a teaching tool to understand the richness of Australian Indigenous life and culture.

    These Clapstick Set’s are designed to allow children to engage in traditional music. Especially made for young hands as they have a 3 cm diameter, they provide a wide grip.
