This is the link to his homepage: http://www.hanginbalance.com/ His cool Youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/hedgemonkeya Go to my channel for more videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/Andyax/featured I found this guy playing along "Karl Johan" street in Oslo (Norway) with an unbelievable instrument! The sound coming out from that thing was amazing. I have never seen anything like this before. Update: Thanks for the comments that explained the instrument. It's called PANArt Hang. The guy playing this Hang is called Daniel Waples :)

  1. So, you may have seen one of these already. The Hang (yes, that's what it's called) is probably my favorite new instrument (it was developed in 2000). It's basically a steel drum flipped upside down, enclosed, and played by banging it with your fingers. There's a good number of YouTube videos using this instrument, but this one is nice and short and is a great example of how the instrument is played. Also, apparently if you're white, wearing a knitted bag on your head is a prerequisite (watch enough of the videos and you'll see what I mean). Anyway, I ran across this video again while going down the YouTube rabbit hole and thought I share. Enjoy.
