Sound, dance, and visuals. This performance portraits the fusion of the sounds of the Handpan instrument, of the dancer’s movements, and the visuals created by the beat – three arts that come together to create one big fusion. After taking his first musical steps studying the violin, Manuel was attracted by the world of percussion, widely used in the Indian, Arab, African, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian cultures. His interest in ethnic music led him to travel, learning from the masters of these different traditions, defining himself as a multi-instrumentalist. In 2015, in addition to obtaining a master’s degree in music therapy, he began composing for theatre and dance by fusing electronic music with handpan.
