While strolling on the beautiful Charles Bridge in the city of Prague, the sound of beautiful music attracted me and led me straight to a bunch of drummers playing instruments known as as Hang ( also sometimes referred to as Hang Drums).
Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer of PANArt Hangbau AG, a Swiss Company created the ‘Hang. The instrument is constructed from two half-shells of deep drawn, nitrided steel sheet glued together at the rim leaving the inside hollow and creating the shape of a convex lens.
The top (“Ding”) side has a center ‘note’ hammered into it and seven or eight ‘tone fields’ hammered around the center. The bottom (“Gu”) is a plain surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck (Source-Wikipedia).
The hang produce an incredibly different sound. Do hear and see for yourself.
Have you ever visited Prague? If you have, surely you must have seen these incredibly talented artists perform. You can share your comments in the comments section below.
