Hello and welcome to my site(:
This is the first blog I am writing and hopefully many more will come. My goal through these posts is to share my knowledge , wisdom , thoughts and good vibes with the handpan community and the world.
So what is pantam love u ask? let me explain what is pantam love for me , why i see the pantam instrument as much more than just a musical instrument through my point of view.
note: the same instrument we love has many different names (such as : hang, handpan, pantam ,hangdrum , halo, bells, spb, asachan, and much more ) in my writings I will relate the instrument as pantam- as its my personal favorite name and the most correct one for me .
Pantam Love as a meditation
close your eyes. imagine your self sitting in a beautiful nature scenery , maybe on a beautiful panoramic mountain lookout , or under the shade of a tree in a sandy desert, it can be on the side of a lake, or on your favorite corner in the city park. imagination is endless.
on your lap lies a beautiful pantam . u take a big breath of fresh air inside, and slowly let your hands to move free on the pantam, one hit after the other, u move your hands and listen, u hear a rich sound , a sound that is blessed in harmony and overtones , u start to follow a inner rythem that is played by your heart, u hear nature sings with u in harmony, the birds are accompanying your playing, u feel the wind, the trees and the ground. your hands are moving freely around the pantam as a butterfly, u are dancing your inner rhythm , u are dancing your uniq song…
we all love the relaxed feeling we get while playing the pantam. the sound help us to connect to our relaxed state of being and to the divine presence of beauty and love. we remember who we truly are.
endless energy flow,
that awakes the emotions for a change,
colorful butterflies fly around,
then time stops,
we are free to dance,
let the healing begin… ”

pantam a musical instrument for everyone! – a great way to develop musical skills
The Pantam , the handpan , the hang drum , the hang , the round ufo look like instrument ,or any name that u like to call this musical instrument family. its a musical instrument that is easy to play and can be learned quite fast in compare to other musical instruments.
I have learned a lot about music and about my self thru this instrument, it feel so good to improvise and free flow with the pantam, for me it was love from first sight!
I have some drumming and percussion background, and i have played and practiced music several years before playing the pantam , but i can definitely say that the pantam love have changed my life!
the basic of playing the handpan is tapping the different dimples with your fingers and letting them vibrate and ripple out beautiful waves of sounds. u can play it and create unique sounds if u are a little baby or a old man , u can play it with musical experience or without. all u need is a will to to create beautiful sounds using your own 2 hands. everyone can play the pantam!
i have seen many people coming from different backgrounds that are learning to play the instrument. while playing the instrument u can learn and improve many musical abilities such as :
