Hang Drum

This video was made in the highlands of Scotland. The song "Inner Voice"...



The Hang Drum is not actually a drum, but rather an idiophone, similar to a steelpan, but the sound is more mellow.  The Hang was developed ten years ago in Switzerland by PanArt.

From Wikipedia: There are many ways to produce sound out of a Hang that do not involve what many consider 'drumming'. The Hang-Makers and many veteran players instead regard the Hang as a complex holistic entity more likened to a "sound sculpture" than a typical drum.

Delightful music and imagery. It touched my heart. I need one of these for "cave sitting"! It would allow me to feel and express the Inner Rhythm... Thank you for sharing this. Christine

That was amazing! How can someone coax those beautiful sounds out of something that honestly looks like a upside down dented dish pan...just saying. Beautiful music to touch the soul.
