      Greenville Handpan Workshop at MODAL

      Handpan South and Modal collaborate to bring you Greenville's first Handpan Workshop. Join us for an afternoon of music, education and community at Modal Coffee Shop. Together we will explore rhythms on the handpan and learn a group composition.
      ***All ages and experience levels welcomed. Handpans are provided.
      Class Time: 2-4pm
      Please bring a mask as we are respecting social distancing guidelines.
      The handpan is a steel instrument developed in 2000 in Switzerland. The instrument is formed by the fusion of the Steel Pan from Trinidad and the Ghatam (a clay pot drum) from South India, creating a uniquely multicultural voice.
      Our instruments are graciously provided by Yishama Pantam,
