VIDEO: Liron Meyuhas’ “Hang Solo”

Liron Meyuhas – Hang Drum Solo from Gabriella Denisi on Vimeo.

The power of hand drums: you must love and respect it. This is Italian musician Liron Meyuhas playing the “hang“, which is a percussion instrument but can’t be quite defined as a “drum”.

According to the Wikipedia entry, the hang was created in Switzerland and its name comes from the German word for “hand”, since this is how you play the instrument. As a fan of the drums and percussion, I think this is very cool sounding. It has a similar feel to the steel drum, but one can hear this and perhaps hear the potential in using this in their own works.
