Manu Delago, last seen in Exeter with Living Room In London in 2012, has just returned from touring around the world as a drummer and Hang player with Icelandic singer Björk.

The ‘masterful and sensitive musician’ (Daily Telegraph) has also performed and recorded as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra and collaborated with various artists such as Anoushka Shankar, Shpongle, Bugge Wesseltoft and The Cinematic Orchestra.

Manu Delago‘s solo career began in 2007 when he uploaded a video onto You Tube in which he played the Hang, a UFO-like hand-played sound sculpture.

Now that video is the most popular Hang video on the internet and has been viewed more than 4 million times. Soon after, the ‘virtuoso on the Hang’ (The Times) formed his own band which has since played around the world.

For the new album the band, Manu Delago Handmade, has teamed up with producer Matt Robertson (Björk, The Prodigy).

The new material explores a vast array of sounds, ranging from sweet and delicate vocal lines with colourful Hang accompaniment, all the way through to chunky, electronic beats.

The sound of the band is mature and well balanced, they have a real understanding of orchestration, moulding and continually changing the texture to create a different sound world with each piece.

The live show of Manu Delago Handmade is a definite must-see.

The performance is delicate and sophisticated, moving with ease between heavily rhythmic and free-flowing spherical sections. Each of the four performers takes on several instruments, displaying the great musical diversity of every member of the ensemble.
