Meditative, relaxing, cosmic journey, exciting, magic! All words used about the Handpan, or Hang as it was first called. Starting as a constructed sound sculpture in Berne, Switzerland, the instrument has become a global phenomenon. Beautiful to listen to, beautiful to play.
I just love the Handpan and the way people stop what they are doing in order to hear more and get lost in the sound. Equally, it can create a magical ambient addition to any environment.
Played purely acoustically, or with a variety of instrumental and electronic backgrounds, the Handpan is magic!
