An ethereal experience if ever there was one.

This is actually the first time I see a tongue drum in action. The sound you get out of it are really good. I like the texture and the natural reverb. That long tail at the end of the track is beautiful. Miraclemiles would approve of this tongue drum playing!

very nice natural sound

I want one of these sooooo bad!!! Lovely to hear this in action. Ethereal, mysterious, bamboo, glistening, depths, cavernous, longing, atmosphere, horizon.

Beautiful piece – gives me a very bittersweet nostalgic feeling. It’s nice to hear a single instrument like this stand on its own without any additional accompaniment.

Lovely tones and atmosphere with the reverbage.  A good piece to just sit back and drift away or meditate to.  The tongue drum looks suhweet.  Always wanted one smile

👅 love it with all the reverb!

I had this track playing in the background and didn't see the title nor the video and came here to comment on how great and atmospheric this sounded! It was a really nice surprise to realize it didn't come from a synth!

yes, this was really beautiful and relaxing. what an intriguing instrument! well played & mixed, reverb was perfect.

this is great, didn't really know what a tongue drum was until I watched this but it's so cool. now wondering if the orba is inspired by these?
