The Hang

For Music Monday, we have an instrument invented in 2000 by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer: The Hang (pronounced "hong" or "hung").

I enjoy listening to Dante Bucci play:

* A hang video directory. I thought Janet Spahr's video was very catchy.
* OddMusic Gallery's Hang info
* As hanghang (the plural of hang) are only handmade by the inventors and as such are very hard to come by, HandPans Magazine offers a list of alternatives to buy.

That was very cool. Wonderful music from a very usual instrument.

Bucci's Fanfare sounded very Asian to me, and Spahr's sounded more Space Music-y.

Loved them both.

Thanks for introducing me to it.
