Dante Bucci fuses world music and melodic indie rock with his pioneering approach to the Hang drum. He is a fixture in the Philly indie music scene and one of the most-recognized Hang players in the world, thanks to a constantly-expanding list of subscribers and over 9 million views on YouTube (youtube.dantebucci.com). Dante plays past the Handpan's ambient, meditative tendencies with insistent melodies and deft percussive strikes. He creates distinct, compelling, hummable songs, sometimes playing two at once to create a layered, polyrhythmic sound. He expertly wields the Handpan in his 2013 debut album, "Kinesthesia", blurring the lines between classical, world, and new age. Solo or backed by a band, Dante’s music always commands a hush. His classical and percussionist experience aids him in pulling sounds out of the Hang that no one else has made - or can figure out how to replicate. From delicate harmonic overtones to deep djembe-like thumps, he pushes the boundaries of the instrument farther than any other player on the planet.
