Good Morning! Yesterday a got some information about one interesting musical instrument. It calls the hang. And I was realy wondered by sound of it. Sound should seem like common percussion ethnic drum, but if player touch hang softly to other side, instrument give out so electric sound, like a synthesizer of 80-s Smile

Are there this instrument applicable in modern prog? I really enjoy of early prog, before middle 70-th, but I would listen some music with this amazing instrument.

I just did a search in the PA discography, and it seems that hangmen can hardly be found in prog circles. I found only one album on which the hang drum is played, by a Hungarian outfit named Djabe: Live in Blue.

They're amazing instruments, I saw a busker playing one in Cologne and didn't know what it was, but it was quite mesmerising. The only band I know that have used one is the Portico Quartet on the their first album Knee Deep in the North Sea.

Ohh, really little-known band, it's so hard to find this song. Probably in "Hang Song" musicians use this instrument Smile, not at all album.

Perhaps, hang is so popular in Germany, because this song playing by musicians from this country https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAzXq6uew4w&list=RDPAzXq6uew4w&index=1
And, maybe this song the most popular, that make with this instrument. But in this, really interesting only hang consignment, and so strange vocal. Some folk song, no more. Look like busker too Smile

"Portico Quartett - Knee deep in the north sea"- that's good! Hang really well fits in jazz.

The handpan is a fantastic instrument. I was actually thinking if I ever started a band it would definitely be featured in it.

Thanks Eugene - I genuinely enjoyed thatClap 
It's an instrument I've seen countless of street performers perform on but never really in a proper live setting with a band.
I may even have tried it at some party once...but alas the memories from that night are so scattered and hazy that I only really remember drinking pisang ambon with cocoa milk on top of a famous horse statue in Copenhagen.

On the acoustic CD from RPWL (http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=27906) the Hang is played (by famous Manu Delago).

On Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland', there's also Hang, again played by Manu Delago.
 
The studio albums from Steve Shehan, Manu Delago and Hang Massive should be considered prog-music, or at least jazzrock/fusion.
