That is awesome! I'd love to run into someone like that on the street here! Of course, they'd probably get arrested for panhandling or some other ordinance...

Makes me wish I was talented musically. Alas... I am not!

I think that talent comes from the soul, not ability.

Amazing... and you'd never see some business man in a suit with anywhere near that soul..

It is called a "Hang"




A Hang (pronounced [haŋ], with vowel sound between those of the words hot and hungry) is a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by PANArt in Switzerland.[1] The Hang is made from two deep drawn, nitrided steel sheets[2] that are attached together creating the recognizable 'UFO shape'. There is nothing inside the Hang but air. The top ("Ding") side has a center 'note' hammered into it with seven or eight 'tone fields' hammered around it. The bottom ("Gu") is a simpler surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck.

Practice and you can. The true question is would you be willing to work at learning.
Seems to be an upsidedown steel drum.

That's pretty cool and the Coke bottle trumpet too.

Here is one of my favorites though.
Arguably the best use of buckets besides holding liquids.

Freestyle drummer with sophisticated beats. And style to boot!

Very kool, I've seen similar instruments before like this, but that one gives of a really full sound like there's a few guys doing it. In Reading town centre where i'm from there's a really good pan flute guy, but he just plugs his cd's in now an essentially mimes to it so he can sell them without stopping. It's so silly, totally ruins the authenticity of it all.

This hippie guy is awesome though!

the instrument is amazing!

It reminds me of a reverse kettle drum, made from oil barrels and made popular by carribean, ska, and reggae music.
Just looks like an inverted portable setup.
I once saw a video of how they make and tune them, was pretty cool.

Yeah, very much like an inverted steel drum. I have a friend in a band (Portico Quartet) who primarily use it in their music, They were very hard to get hold of when they started as they are exclusively handmade by the two inventers in their workshop in Berne.
