Today in Midday Matinee, we take a listen to some amazing music by several artists. They play an instrument called the Hang.

Midday Matinee is our people watching, people doing and people being feature. Join the Woodland Creatures for an afternoon break.

I found these videos when searching for street musicians. I was amazed at the sound, and the novelty of the instrument, which the video creators in the first video explain:

HANG MASSIVE – ONCE AGAIN – 2011 Enjoy a short hang drum duo video filmed on an autumnal morning in the beautiful town of Bath Spa, UK. The instrument played is called a Hang. It is a new hand crafted instrument, made it Switzerland since the year 2000. The music is by the duo Hang Massive – Danny Cudd and Markus Offbeat.

These artists are Daniel Waples and Danny Cudd and the duo are called the Hang Playing Hedge Monkeys.
