About the artists:

Dan Mulqueen - Dan's playing style is both beautifully melodic and intensely percussive. While keeping the handpan as the centerpiece of his compositions, his stylistic approach invites the listener to experience elements of multiple genres of music.

Sofia Dias: Miami-based hand percussionist and composer Sofia Dias has a captivating groove that’s going to get you moving. Her strong Brazilian influences are felt in the way she approaches the hardpan.

Michael Akortia: Coming from a family of musicians, this certified jam hunter has been drumming since the age of 6. Through years of practice and music study, Michael has cultivated a unique style that has earned him the nickname “groove master” in Japan.

Josh Rivera: From playing drums at the age of 5 to playing in a prog rock band for years, learning tabla and darbuka, handpan and frame drum, the musically percussive instruments have since always played a major role in Josh’s Life. Founder of Veritas Sound Sculpture, Josh builds the finest instruments played by top players around the world.

Adam Maalouf: The creator of Resound, Maalouf dreams to push the limits of handpan ensemble artistry. His Lebanese-American heritage provides a unique vantage point in compositions weaving handpan, world percussion, and cello in the studio and live on stage. Maalouf forms an East-West blend that bridges his influences in music from around the world.
