The Hang drum is a rare and magical instrument, imported from Switzerland and truly unique to the west coast of Canada. Master drummer John Watkins is one of a handful of musicians worldwide who have mastered the art of coaxing melodic rhythms and otherworldly melodies from this unique instrument.

Soothing, tranquil and hypnotic, Hang Johnny captivated crowds during the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver and he’s performed at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens, as well as numerous weddings and corporate events. Hang Johnny’s CD, Why Not, features the hang drum accompanied by piano, guitar, bass and saxophone.
