DANIEL WAPLES PLAYING THE HANG

A hang is played with the hands and when hit gives the same type of soft sound as a steel drum. Here’s a video of Daniel Waples playing his hang very well.

A hang (pronounced ‘han’) is a musical instrument from Switzerland. A hang is played with the hands and when hit gives the same type of soft sound as a steel drum does. The creators of the instrument discourage labelling a hang as part of the drum family, saying:

“Treating it as a drum and promoting the name Hang Drum, for instance, has created a ripple effect of misinformation that leads to damaged Hang, physical injury, and mental and emotional turbulence.”

This is Daniel Waples playing his hang very well in Oslo (Norway):
