Manu Delago

  • Manu Delago

    As a two-year-old Manu Delago began what would become a very musically inclined life as he sat behind his first drum kit and started playing for various bands as a young teenager. His rock band HotchPotch won the Austrian Band Contest and toured across Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain. When Manu Delago began playing the Hang (handpan) in 2003 he discovered his passion for writing music. He graduated from the university Mozarteum in Innsbruck in classical percussion, jazz drums at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and composition at Trinity College of Music.

     

    Manu Delago's solo piece “Mono Desire” was the most popular Hang video on the internet with over five million views and charted in the Top 30 music videos on Youtube. In 2007 he founded his own band Manu Delago Handmade and the duo Living Room and released his first albums. His LPs feature various guest artists such as Erik Truffaz, Andreya Triana or Douglas Dare and won over tastemakers from BBC 6Music’s Tom Ravenscroft and Don Letts to Radio 2’s Alex Lester, Nitin Sawhney and Jamie Cullum, and was supported by i-D, Clash and DJ Mag.

     

    Manu Delago has also collaborated with various genre-leading artists. He appeared as a guest on two albums of the Psy-Trance producers Shpongle and performed on various occasions. In 2011 he recorded for Björk's Biophilia album and has since been her touring drummer, playing four world tours with the Icelandic singer. In 2013, he started performing and writing music with the sitar-player Anoushka Shankar. For his work on her album 'Land of Gold' Manu Delago earned a Grammy nomination. The versatile percussionist has also been a touring member of The Cinematic Orchestra and Olafur Arnalds.

     

    As percussionist and drummer Manu Delago has performed in prestigious venues on six continents such as the Royal Albert Hall, Roundhouse, Royal Festival Hall and Barbican in London, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Sydney Opera House and Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. Furthermore, Manu Delago has performed and recorded as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra, Metropole Orkest, Aurora Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.

     

    On the album Metromonk (2017, Tru Thoughts Records), Manu Delago focussed on electronic sound manipulation of the Handpan. The video of the single 'Freeze' was filmed in the Alps and premiered by Red Bull Music. That outdoor adventure triggered the idea to a bigger and more audacious project – Parasol Peak a multi-award winning album and film in which Manu Delago leads an ensemble of seven musicians on a mountaineering expedition in the Alps (2018, One Little Independent Records).

     

    In 2019, Circadian was recorded and toured with an ensemble of nine musicians. The music is based around sleep cycles and the theme which further inspired the 7.5 hours long rework album Nightliner on which he collaborated with artists like Hugar, Kelly Moran and Brandt Brauer Frick. After years of touring, Manu felt it was important to do his bit towards sustainability by launching the carbon neutral Recycling Tour, performing venues across Germany and Austria, accessed only by bicycles.

     

    In 2021, Manu Delago is set to release his unique new album, Environ Me. Constructed using his signature percussive skills as well as electronic manipulation and sounds recorded directly from an array of natural sources, the LP is a dynamic and exploration which harnesses the best of his adventurous spirit and singular vision as a human being and as an artist.

Dan Mulqueen

Teacher & Performer (USA)
  • www.danmulqueen.com
  • Dan Mulqueen

    Dan Mulqueen is an American multi-instrumentalist from New Jersey. Dan's music is centered around an instrument called the "Handpan", an instrument created in 2001 in Switzerland. This instrument allows the player to create a rhythm and a melody simultaneously using only the hands.

     

    Determined to push the limits of music revolving around this instrument, Dan's playing style is both beautifully melodic and intensely percussive. His stylistic approach invites the listener to experience elements of multiple genres of music all housed in one easily digestible format. While keeping the handpan as the centerpiece of his compositions, Dan's recordings also feature instruments such as upright bass, piano, electronic beats, guest vocals and more.

    Dan has over 18 years of percussion experience in genres like hip-hop, rock, reggae, trip-hop, electronic, blues and latin. When asked about how these genres inspire his writing process, Dan responded "...it's important to me to take my favorite elements of multiple genres and blend them into something different. You'd be really surprised how open people are to music when they can identify with even a tiny element of it." 

     

    In addition to multiple solo tours across Australia, Europe and the USA, Mulqueen has also shared the stage with Shpongle for two sold out concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and collaborated with artists such as Long Arm, Zebbler Encanti Experience and many more. 

    No matter what kind of music you're into, Dan has something in his music catalog for you. His music spans across multiple genres and grabs the attention of both casual music listeners and die-hard music lovers. So kick back, relax, and enjoy the sounds of Dan Mulqueen and the handpan!

  • Thierry Bleton

    A self-taught musician, I practiced many instruments before discovering Handpan 10 years ago. Inaccessible at the time, it is only since 4 years that this dream has finally become reality. From the first notes, the sound of this instrument has profoundly changed the way I feel about music.  

    To be able to share an emotion, to travel and to forget everyday life for a moment through the universal language of music, is what motivates me every day. 

    The Handpan is above all for me a magical instrument. Thanks to him, I have found a way to express myself fully and share with you unique and emotional moments.

    Outre mon Amour pour la musique, j’aime aller à la rencontre des personnes, partager…

    J’ai toujours aimé transmettre, soutenir, prendre soin.

    En 2017, après une réflexion personnelle sur « qui je suis réellement et quel est mon but dans la vie », je prends conscience de cette envie de partager et d’aider grâce à la musique. Je possède certaines bases qui me permettent de proposer rapidement des cours de musique ainsi que de la relaxation en Voyage Sonore.

    En octobre 2017, je m’inscris au Centre Benenzon Belgique et entame la formation en vue du titre de « Technicien en thérapie non-verbale benenzonienne ». C’est une révélation! Le modèle Benenzon est un des cinq modèles de musicothérapie reconnu à travers le monde et son approche non-verbale permettant d’exprimer, consciemment et/ou inconsciemment, ses émotions me passionne. Je suis actuellement toujours en cours de formation et ne cesse d’apprendre de nouvelles choses.

    Début 2018, je décide de lancer officiellement Quinte&Sens. Dans un premier temps, il s’agit d’une activité complémentaire mais mon souhait est de pouvoir en vivre à part entière.

    Actuellement, je suis responsable des pôles musique-danse et artistiques aux Chemins d’Ariane – IMS de Ciney.

    Je suis également musicothérapeute au SAJA de Schaltin.
