Daniel Waples and the Hang Drum

I posted a picture of some street musicians we saw on Portabello Road in London.  I'd never seen anyone play this instrument before.  The sound was amazing and seemed...at least to me...African in nature.

I got an anonymous comment on the blog the other day.  The artist playing the hang drum is Daniel Waples and he is fairly well know. It's great to know who this is and to be able to hear the music again. Thank you Anonymous!!

Check out the video below.  I love watching Daniel play.  He is in such a zone....obviously doing what he loves.

Here's a TED talk where you can here some of the story behind the instrument and get to know Daniel a little bit more.  He's genuine and endearing.
