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. What the bloody hell is this man doing with a dustbin lid, get your hair cut. Bring back national service.
  2. El Hang es un instrumento hecho a mano en Suiza por una pareja, que sólo producen una cierta cantidad cada año.
  3. 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.
