Moyo Steel Tongue Drum - By Visionhawk Music

Created by ‘VisionHawk Music’, comes the ‘Moyo’ range of steel tongue drums. A collection of nice looking Hank-style tongue drums, named after the Swahili word for ‘Heart’. i,e, ‘Moyo'.

Built with ‘heart, and soul’, Moyo drums, come in a variety of styles (and colors). Including the ‘Moyo Midi’, an eight note drum of the traditional style common to most Hank, the ‘Moyo Baby’, a smaller, more portable version of the Moyo Midi. And the most interesting of the collection (for somebody who has seen a lot of Hank), the ‘Moyo Z’ (also known as the ‘Moyo Razor’) a steel tongue drum with only two tongues, that dissect the playing surface, to make a tongue drum that is played in a similar fashion to a set of Bongo drum. That looks like it could be a lot of fun to play.

All Moyo steel tongue drum feature a sort of woven skirt, that resembles friendship bracelets. That give them a unique look. And they have a pleasing sound.

Costing between $225-$335 (at time of writing), depending upon the model. A Moyo drum could be just what you’ve been looking for. Whether for personal meditative play, or to make you king of the drum circle.
