Hang – a mesmerizing music instrument

Today in a park in St. Petersburg, we heard for the first time ever the musical instrument Hang. It was very beautifully played by Sergei K. and we got a copy of his first CD. It is a very interesting instrument, developed just in the last fifteen years in Switzerland. If you know someone who has a Hang, we would like to borrow it sometime and try more – so please let us know!
