A virtuoso performance on the double wok

Today, while sipping a white wine spritzer in the little Italian café on my way home, I listened to a young woman busking with a hang.

A hang is basically a portable steel drum shaped like a double wok; it is very esoteric, very rare, and only recently invented in Switzerland.

All you can do on one is, basically, improvise in a half-percussive way, not play tunes or pieces; but the sound is very relaxing.

It was a moment of purest RL luxury. If I ever see her busking again, I'll buy her CD.-
