Hang Drum Southbank

We accidentally found ourselves at the heart of the Thames Festival as we wandered along the Southbank on Saturday which was pretty hectic and with so much going on, it was a pretty exhausting walk! However, we came across a hang-drum player that changed our mood completely.

I would imagine the hang is an incredibly difficult instrument to play but makes a beautiful sound. I came across the hang-drum years ago when I saw the now famous Portico Quartet also busking on the Southbank. To give you an idea of the rhythmic sound of the hang, you can listen to the Portico Quartet on YouTube here. I haven’t been able to find out this musician’s name but if anyone knows, please comment here.
