The ACFNY is proud to support the Hang player, percussionist, producer and composer Manu Delago, who is currently on world tour presenting his new album “Metromonk”. Besides the concert at (le) poisson rouge, Manu Delago was chosen to perform at the SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) on March 10, 2017.
When Manu Delago discovered the Hang – an enchanting sound sculpture Manufactured by PanArt in Switzerland – he simultaneously discovered his passion for writing music. His Hang solo piece Mono Desire has become the most popular Hang video on the internet and was in the Top30 music videos on Youtube.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
As a two-year-old, Manu Delago began what would become a very musically inclined life as he sat behind his first drum-kit. Four years later, he took accordion lessons and at the age of ten, he started playing the piano. As a teenager Manu Delago mainly played football and drummed for his rock band HotchPotch which won the Austrian Band Contest in 2003. After graduating in classical percussion in his hometown Innsbruck, he moved to London where he studied jazz drums and composition.
With his ensembles Manu Delago Handmade and Living Room he has released several albums and performed in prestigious venues all over the world. The Austrian musician also frequently collaborates with high-class artists such as Björk, Anoushka Shankar, The Cinematic Orchestra, Joss Stone, Andreya Triana, Shpongle, Bugge Wesseltoft, Aurora Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.
