Welcome to Soma Sound Sculptures

Playing a handpan is inviting a sense of magic into our lives. If we let the instrument guide us, our creative musical potential is easily and playfully tapped into. Presence fills our minds. We drift, we flow, we feel restored. Handpans are intuitively and easily accessible even to people without any musical background. A truly universal instrument for our times. 


Soma are sound sculptures handmade in Switzerland. They are inspired by the well-known Hang®, built by PANart Hangbau AG. 
All instruments are carefully tuned and heat treated many times to ensure warm intonation and structural stability.

More information about the instrument can be found on the FAQ page,  Soma's Facebook presence or our Instagram account. The videos linked  here and on our Youtube channel are all recorded without special equipment or additional sound effects.  For the  best  audio  experience, however, headphones are recommended.
Thank you for visiting!
