Most people know the sound of a steel drum. However, not that many know its smaller cousin the hang. Bruno Bieri beautifully plays this instrument while adding numerous colors through his overtone singing. The intro animation was produced as a collaboration between TEDxBasel and the Hochschule Luzern. This animation was created by Loïc Kreyden and Valentine Moser. Find out more about this event and the other ideas that were shared at Bruno is a musician that often accompanies his songs with the Hang, an instrument invented in Bern. Through Nature-yodeling and overtone singing, he explores the reproduction of natural tones exemplified in alphorn and yodel singing. His concerts have taken him to India, the USA, the UK, Norway, and Saudi Arabia. Bieri is currently a freelance musician and lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW. Besides singing, Bruno’s passion is most definitely the alphorn. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
