JuandPan – a Handpan Solo Recital of Tunes from Around the World

On Saturday night the 24th November 2018 at CRIPA in Kalabhumi, Juan Andrés invited us to spontaneously move or to just relax and listen to a 12 country musical journey played on the handpan. JuandPan is the musical solo project of Juan Andrés, Sante’’s psychotherapist and soon to be announced, newcomer.

The 12 compositions he shared are inspired by the twelve different countries he visited between 2016 and 2017, during his one-way research trip looking for a conscious place to live more sustainably and spiritually. This trip concluded with his decision to make Auroville his current home.

Juan Andrés has been playing music since he was a young boy experimenting with metallophone, flute and keyboard, but it was not until he was 14 and discovered the drum kit that he started taking music more seriously. He participated in several bands, music projects and recorded numerous Eps and Lps, especially with the alternative rock bands, Gnosis and Record, from Chile.

Nevertheless, Juan Andrés’s connection with melodic instruments and a more spiritual way to experience music was missing in his life. This could only change when he found the handpan; a last generation instrument designed by Swiss sound engineers inspired mostly by Caribbean steel drums and middle eastern clay percussion jars.

Currently, Juan Andrés is in the process of composing and recording the drum tracks for the JuandPan album as well as learning Indian tabla to complement his compositions. He is also starting to incorporate his handpan in a collaborative musical project developing in Kalabhumi studio in which he also plays the drum kit.
