Amazing Hang drum solo

Great vdeo of a guy playing steel drums (look like inverted woks) called Hang drums.

Hang means "hand" in the Bernese language, and is pronounced "hung or hong".

The Hang was developed in Switzerland. It was the result of many years of research on the steelpan and the study of the diverse collection of instruments from around the world, such as Gongs, Gamelan, Ghatam, drums, bells, etc.

The instrument is played with the hands. Udu-like sounds are produced with the air resonance, the sounds of the clamped shallow shells sound like bells or harmonically tuned steelpans.

Here is a link to his website as well
