    Nothing I have ever seen or heard before, but certainly a pleasant sound

    According to the comments on the video of Daniel Waples playing one in Karl Johanes Gate in Oslo it is called a PANArt Hang manufactured on a limited basis by a company in Switzerland. On this video Daniel turns the instrument over to achieve a different tone. Very interesting and pleasant sounding rhythm instrument.

    Hows about a Laser Harp........
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Became attracted to the harp because of the Marx Brothers films, and of course living in Wales the music of it was never far away. The Welsh harpis of course smaller, and therefore quiter.

    I enjoyed the clip John. I felt it worked

    The Irish Harps produce a nice rounded tone

    Minamahal (I Am Loving You)

    by: Charmaine Clamor

    Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving you)
    Pagsinta ay 'di mag-iiba (my feelings will not change)
    Hindi mo ba nadarama sinta (Can?t you feel it my darling?)
    Bawa't kilos ko'y pangarap ka (My every action hopes for you)
    Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving you)
    At nasa iyo ang tanging pag-asa (in you lies my only hope)
    Asahan mong dalangin ko, tuwina (Know that it is always in my prayers)
    Minamahal, minamahal kita (I am loving, loving you)

    The Sax was a first for me, not too unpleasant somewhat similar to an old Buffalo passing wind, but the Bassoon falls into the category of instruments that for me are not suitable for jazz.
