Four Hands One HandPan - A Steel Connection

While it’s not something that we stumble across as frequently as we'd like to over in YouTube land, one of our personal favourite things about the Handpan instrument here at HPM, is the way in which one instrument can be comfortably shared between more than one player.  Duets featuring more than one Handpan are common. But we’ve always found something quite special in watching, listening to, and even experiencing for ourselves from time-to-time, steel shared...



The Handpan's shape fits perfectly between two people, and with the instruments specially designed sound-models / scales, that in general make it near impossible to hit a "wrong" note - playing Handpan with another, is always a lot of fun.  And while saying that it's a little like making "musical-love", might sound a little cliche.  We'd encourage you to try it for yourself (if you haven't already), and see if you don't feel - just a little flustered...



So that while with our reference above still in mind, the following may sound questionable - If two people just aren’t enough for you, well, the more the merrier.  As can be seen in the following Handpan-gang-bang from this years GRIASDI Handpan Festival - in which five “morally-loose” Handpanners, all share one Handpan, to great effect...



And should you be world-renowned for your “Magic Hands”, all the better...
