Daniel Waples - Hang in Balance
Daniel Waples, along with his hang drums/hand pans has been frequenting India almost yearly since 2007...
During that time he has amassed more views on youtube than any other hand pan/hang drum player.
Having now given performances in around 60 countries and been a speaker at no less than 6 TEDx events (one of which was right here in Bangalore!)
He is currently on 10 city tour of India as a member of Arijit Singh's backing band, but has managed to break a day out from their schedule to be able to share an evening in his favourite city in India - Bangalore!
His style of play is self taught and often seen as inspiration to those who begin to study these new instruments.s
Shifting between Celtic Melodies and African inspired rhythms, this will be his third performance at the Humming Tree...
The first time that he visited the Hummingtree was as part of the Emerge Tour, along with Alt-J and the Rudimental, since then he has appeared alongside local based multi-percussionist - Montry Thalavattamm...
This will be his first ever solo show in Bangalore!"
Daniel supports himself as an independent musician playing the handpan, an instrument associated with energy work and alternative healing – one which he hopes will become a symbol for universal peace and the inner journeys all people take pursuing their individual paths.
“Hang in Balance” is the artistic title Daniel Waples has been playing under since 2011 and can be found on social media @HangInBalance.
