Manu Delago is a celebrated Austrian-born percussionist, producer and composer, and is the world’s leading Hang player.
The “Hang” was developped in 2000 by two Swiss inventors. It is constructed from two half-shells of deep drawn, nitrided steel sheet glued together at the rim leaving the inside hollow and creating a distinct ‘UFO shape’. Manu Delago’s Hang solo piece “Mono Desire” has become the most popular Hang video in the internet and was in the Top30 music videos on Youtube.
With his ensembles “Manu Delago Handmade” and “Living Room” he has released several albums and performed in prestigious venues all over the world. Recording and playing live with Björk, Manu Delago also frequently collaborates with highclass artists such as Anoushka Shankar, The Cinematic Orchestra, Joss Stone, Andreya Triana, Shpongle (Simon Posford), Bugge Wesseltoft, Aurora Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.
