When did you start playing the handpan? How did you discover it?
At first we didn't know each other, but we have same inspiration from the foreigner busker who play handpan on street, suddenly we fall in love with its vibe. After trying and waiting to get it for a long time, at the end of 2013 we both got our first handpan and then we met because the maker introduce us to know each other. We have been playing together for around one and a half years.
What makes the handpan a special instrument?
It can make both rhythmic and melodic sounds. It has no rule to play and the vibe sounds relaxing.
Can you describe the music you play in Honon Handpan Journey?
Our music are base on handpan combine with others simple purcussions and instruments. We really don't know how to describe them but some said that it is a kind of world, new-age. ( sometimes I think some song are pop-rock ^_^)
Where can people hear you play?
-We mainly spread our vibe by busking, On always busks near Kaosan Road. When we have a chance, we go to busk in different places such north and south of Thailand, and sometimes we have some gigs or jammimg with others .
What is the message in the music?
It is life.
Thanks Hon and On!
