Manu Delago über sich

Manu Delago has just returned from touring around the world as drummer and Hang player of the Icelandic singer Björk. The “masterful and sensitive musician“ (The Telegraph) has also performed and recorded as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra and collaborated with various artists such as Anoushka Shankar, Shpongle, Bugge Wesseltoft or The Cinematic Orchestra.

His solo career began in 2007 when he uploaded a video onto Youtube in which he plays the Hang, a UFO-like hand-played sound sculpture. Now that video is the most popular Hang video in the internet and has been viewed more than 4 million times. Soon after, the “virtuoso on the Hang“ (The Times) formed his own band which has since played concerts on fve continents.

For the new album the band 'Manu Delago Handmade' has teamed up with producer Matt Robertson (Björk, The Prodigy). The new material explores a vast array of sounds, ranging from sweet and delicate vocal lines with colourful Hang accompaniment, all the way through to chunky, electronic beats. The sound of the band is mature and well balanced, they have a real understanding of orchestration, moulding and continually changing the texture to create a different sound world with each piece.

The live show of Manu Delago Handmade is a defnite must-see. The performance is delicate and sophisticated, moving with ease between heavily rhythmic and free-fowing spherical sections. Each of the four performers takes on several instruments, displaying the great musical diversity of every member of the ensemble.

”amazing percussionist and Hang player” - Björk

“There was party time: drummer Manu Delago's orgiastic blast of percussion” - David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“What a non-stop affair of creativity, surprise, beauty, harmony, wit, art, invention, energy, entertainment” – Amanda Yensa Manor, Author & Journalist

Hang Rules
Netter Song, das Hang ist leider noch immer viel zu mystifiziert (liegt wahrscheinlich an der Verkaufstaktik des Herstellers). Aber vielleicht deswegen einzigartig im Indie-Bereich.
