Hang Drum Solo [Video]

The hang is a relatively new instrument created in Switzerland in 2000. It's a melodic percussion instrument that looks a bit like a UFO. It produces sounds similar to a steel drum, but sounds less harsh in my opinion. In the middle of the hang there's a bass note that is surrounded by 7 or 8 harmonic notes.

Here's a video of Manu Delago playing the Hang:
