Interesting music

I saw a street musician near the Plaza today, playing an instrument I had never seen before (yeah, I don’t get out much). I was intrigued by the music coming from this flying saucer the guy held in his lap. It turns out the instrument is called a hang, pronounced hahng (Bernese German for hand). The sound is rather haunting and Eastern, with kind of a dope-smoking air to it.

The physics of the sound production is interesting as well, if you are into that sort of thing.


Well, judge for yourself. This video is of a couple of guys who play together as Hang Massive.
