Manu Delago

As a two-year-old Manu Delago began what would become a very musically inclined life as he sat behind his first drumkit. As a mainly Rock influenced teenager, the Austrian musician played the drums for various bands. After graduating at the university Mozarteum in Innsbruck in classical percussion, Manu Delago moved to London and studied jazz drums at Guildhall School of Music & Drama and composition at Trinity College of Music. When Manu Delago began playing the Hang - a UFO shaped percussion instrument from Switzerland - in 2003, he simultaneously discovered his passion for writing music. With his own bands Manu Delago Handmade and Living Room he released several albums and performed all over the world. Manu Delago has also appeared as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra and collaborated with artists such as Björk, The Cinematic OrchestraAnoushka ShankarBugge Wesseltoft and Nitin Sawhney
