Bio

In the relatively short time since it was first invented, the melodic Swiss percussion instrument known as the ‘Hang’ has captured the interest of artists and listeners alike around the world. The young Hang virtuoso Manu Delago has led a musically versatile life. At the age of two years old, he began what would become a very musically inclined life as he sat behind his first drumkit. Four years later, he took accordion lessons. Then, by age ten, he learned to play the piano. In the years that followed, he experimented with several different instruments. After studying classical percussion at the conservatory in Innsbruck (Austria), Manu Delago moved to London where he completed the postgraduate jazz course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

The positive feedback on his first solo Hang album, ‘Made in Silence’, encouraged him to create his own live-band ‘Manu Delago Handmade’. In addition to hovering ethereal sounds, this unique acoustic project provides elements of smooth Jazz, classical chamber music and groovy Drum’n’bass. For their first tour in the US the group will be joined by the extraordinary acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan Case. The New Hampshire native also played on Manu Delago’s current album ‘Adventions’.
