This is sent to me by good friend and fine young artist, Jay Darrow.
Rarely has an instrument intrigued me as much as my glorious hammered dulcimer. This instrument, pronounced “hung drum”, but spelled HangDrum, moves me.
On a side note, at the Deeper Youth Conference in Saint John last week, during my talk we broke into a Stomp-like exercise. Rhythms cascading into rhythms, that’s what it was, until human voices began to join the frolicking – then it got serious!
What a blast. This sound is lovely – similar to the qualities of “percussion meets melody” that come from the hammered dulcimer. Thanks for putting us onto this, Jay.
Anyone know where I can get about 3 of these for the Institute?
