Coffee Shops – A cool place to Hang??

This post will concentrate mainly on the music side of my blog. I found this video while Stumble!-ing around the internet. To tell you the truth, I was quite dumbfounded when the video began to play… I had no prior knowledge of hang drums, and am very interested in percussion instruments. This video knocked my socks off, and led to an afternoon (and the majority of the evening) of research in the attempts to gather more information on hang drums, and how I could own one! So please, please look at the video! An musician or music lover will receive great pleasure!

As you can see, hang drums (pronounced ‘hung’ or ‘hong’) are very similar to a steel drum, and uses many of the same principals to operate. What amazes me is the variety of sounds you can generate! For more information, make sure you google search ‘Hang Drums‘, or you can check this site out here!
