Manu Delago

World renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago presents his first audiovisual project Environ Me.

Fording the bridge between ambient electronica and neoclassical, Manu Delago's acoustic percussion melts into both electronic beats and the sounds of our environment; integrating field recordings made in the Tyrolean Alps. Accompanying this are astonishing live visuals that evoke water, fire, animals, locomotion, wind and other elements of our surroundings – ushering the wild outdoors into the concert hall.
After several years as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar; as well as the multi award-winning music-and-mountain film Parasol Peak; the Grammy-nominated artist returns with an entirely new show.

Produced by the Barbican
