Three Slovakia Made Handpan

Slovakia is a central European country known for its dramatic natural landscape and many castles. Near the Austrian border, capital city Bratislava features a pedestrian-only Old Town with a lively cafe scene. Rising on a hill above the Danube River, Bratislava Castle houses a branch of the Slovak National Museum, with displays ranging from Roman artifacts to 20th-century arts and crafts.  And while you might not yet find any Handpan displayed within the museum's walls, as we explore three Slovakia-made Handpan below, it should be clear, that as with all things, it is now only a matter of time…

Ziva Handpans

Built and tuned by Rastislav Pablo Belko, based in Trenčín, a city in western Slovakia of the central Váh River valley near the Czech border, Ziva Handpans, despite being relatively new to the scene, have already built up quite the fan-base.  And in lieu of too many words on our part, you can take a listen to two 2017-model Ziva Handpan below, from over at Rastislav's YouTube channel...



Singing Steel Handpans

Our second make of Handpan hailing from Slovakia come courtesy of the Singing Steel team, who make “musical instruments that harmonize and heal”.  And while there isn’t a huge amount of video of these to be found online at time of posting, you can check out a couple of videos of these Slovakia-made Handpan below (and visit them over at their website here for more info)...



Djangar Pans

Our third and final (for this post) Slovakia-made Handpan is the work of Handpan-builder, Dušan Martinček, whose creations go by the name of, Djangar Pans.  We’ll share a couple of recent videos below for you to take a listen to, and for more information, you can find the Djangar Pans Facebook page here...
