Since 2011 Hang Massive have shaped the global handpan music scene, pioneering a successful electronic act with a magnetizing live show. Blending dream-like acoustic and upbeat electronic sounds, their unique style inspires a worldwide audience.
The magic began in 2011 with their first music release and video “Once Again”, which gained wide renown and was watched over 60 million times online. Its viral success introduced people around the world to a captivating new instrument and saw the emergence of a global fan base devoted to this groundbreaking musical project.
The founding members, Danny Cudd and Markus Offbeat, met on the shores of Goa, India, forging their creative partnership in its vibrant international arts scene. Over the following years, the Hang Massive project evolved from busking on the streets of European cities to performing festival line-ups and high profile music venues around the world. Today the duo split their time between their home studio in Goa and touring globally.
Dedicated Dzogchen practitioners for over 10 years, Danny and Markus’ music is a direct expression of the empowerments received from their Root Guru Candice Rinpoche, Lineage Successor of Venerable Wangdor Rimpoche (see www.openintelligenceandlove.org). Their committed practice has supported not only their music to flourish but also a harmonious friendship and vibrant creative partnership.
Continually experimenting over the years, the duo released a wide range of hang inspired music, EPs, albums and videos in collaboration with a stellar list of producers and musicians.
2018 saw the release and great success of their latest album “Luminous Emptiness.” The powerful collaboration features standout tracks like “End of Sky” and “The Secret Kissing of the Sun and the Moon,” which has amassed almost 12 million views online.
During the Luminous Emptiness Tour from 2018–2019, they performed sellout gigs across Europe, the UK and South America bringing fans a mesmerizing new audio-visual experience.
With an upcoming album on the horizon, plus a global tour and program of international festivals, we can expect exciting new evolutions from Hang Massive in the next years.
