Marcel Hutter

I am a musician and handpan player from Linz (located in Austria/Europe).

I got my first handpan in 2012 and because there was no one who could have taught me how to play it, I started experiencing it by myself.

A completely new chapter of my life began, because of my (seemingly) endless passion for this instruments, and now I am travelling around the world while my collection of handpans is growing more and more.

Music is in my soul, runs through my veins and keeps beating in my chest all the time!

I am not just a Handpan Player but also percussionist and I am experienced with many instruments like a Cachon, Kalimba or Clamps but my favourites are still my pans.

Creating music is such a pleasure for me so let’s just have fun together!


Moritz Labschutz

Moritz Labschütz is a professional drummer, multi-instrumentalist & composer with many years of musical experience. He has appeared on a large number of stages performing music from various genres. As a multi-instrumentalist, Moritz has always looked for new ways to integrate various instruments into his stage performances. His fascination with instruments, which create rich overtones, brought him to the unique sound of the “Steel Pan”. This fascination, further lead him to the sound spheres of the “Handpan” and the “Rav Vast Drum” with which he made a profound connection.

His fine groove-oriented rhythmic embellishments give his music an unique character which creates a spherical space and lets the listener plunge deep into it.  Moritz Labschütz also enjoys performing in different musical projects such as: Klangwelten“, „Sound Drop“ & „The Original Jassband.“  He also offers workshops and teaches music on regular basis.
