The handpan is an idiophone, meaning that the sound it generates comes from the instrument itself, without the aid of strings, wind, or electric charge. Its mellow, pleasing sound evokes tranquil landscapes and exotic destinations.
What makes the handpan different from many other instruments is its diatonic construction: each handpan is built according to one specific scale. The great advantage of this is that it’s very hard to hit a “wrong” note! The tones of these instruments are built right in, requiring no constant tuning or exact technique to achieve the correct note.
With experience, the player of the handpan can achieve a kind of auto-pilot where the mind drifts away along the waves of sound. Come discover the handpan and its unique sound during your first free consultation at Mi Fa. Contact us today.
