Daniel Waples is a musician from London who has been spreading the meditative sounds of the Hand Pan across the world.
He visited Africa several times, taught himself the tribal drum rhythms he heard on his travels and then transposed these rhythms onto the Hand Pan, creating lushious, meditative and relaxing sounds.
Daniel’s approach to life, the way he thinks and the way he expresses himself and his ideas are all inspiring. As you watch him play, look at his relaxed and pleasant smile. It’s infectious. This is a guy who has found his passion and his meaning to life – we could all learn a lot from this young man’s words.
And as an extra treat, here’s the video of the week from handpan.org:
