Every audience no matter how big or small is absolutely
transfixed by the sounds he creates."

A little more info about Dante.
Now Dante is the center of his own songs. Blurring the lines between classical, world, and new age, he demonstrates a virtuosic percussive style that pushes the boundaries of the instrument farther than any other player on the planet. His 2008 EP, Reminiscence, reveals the versatility of the Handpan with compositions that range from meditative melodies to rhythmic band arrangements. His 2013 debut album, Kinesthesia, treats you to performances in both accompaniment and lead roles – backing a classical string quartet before executing the swift melodies of an Irish reel. From delicate harmonic overtones to deep djembe-like thumps, Dante pulls sounds out of the Handpan that no one else has made, or can even figure out how to replicate.

Dante Bucci has appeared live on the WXPN Folk Show with Gene Shay, and receives regular play on WXPN and the nationally syndicated Echoes radio show (echoes.org). He has performed in such local venues as the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts and the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and was featured at sold out appearances with the English psychedelic project Shpongle at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and Fox Oakland Theater in Oakland, California. Dante’s music is available on iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.
