During this performance, we will explore the connection between listening and playing, between the audience and the “performer”, and between intention and harmony. I will have Handpans and other musical treats from around the world. We invite to come and get cozy for a beautiful evening of deep listening and community reflection.

Handpan 360, founded in 2016 by Peter Levitov, is devoted to sharing the transformational power of this new instrument with the world. The Handpan, invented in 2000, has a sound unlike anything else in the world, almost like a mix between a harp, piano, and tabla. The simple layout and intuitive scales makes it possible for anyone to play and compose with ease. We believe this instrument has a deep well of wisdom available to all who come to quench their thirst. The simple joy of playing, direct experience of harmony, and the ability to express ourselves non-verbally, brings healing and a sense of wholeness.
I have been performing and teaching Handpan for 8 years. During this time, I have found this instrument to have a profound effect on my mind, body, and heart. It’s ability to harmonize the three has transformed my life from top to bottom. I feel there is something special about metal and the way it makes sound. It reminds us of something about the mystery inside ourselves. This is what I want to share with you.
Peter Levitov is an experimental multi-instrumentalist and improvisational composer. His soundscapes, inspired by Tibetan, Sufi, and Indigenous healing sound traditions, explore a broad range of instrumentation, from ancient to contemporary, creating restorative environments that support personal growth and healing.
