The Hang love good people good food good
sleep Adam Gallina Houseconcerttour 2012
Adam Gallina is a Master percussionist from
Italy who lives in the moment in Berlin.
I met Adam at the begin of June during a small
club tour by his 3 man band Hang Caravan.
I was directly fascinated by his loving,
peaceful expression and I felt, that his music
his art and his love does not belong to kind of
cold clubs, but more to warmhearted houses
were people create a loving atmosphere and
the rhythm can flow and can connect and
reach us humans. By that I told him of my
projects with house concerts for people by
people and with the right atmosphere and
listening peaceful loving connected human
Adam was fascinated by the Idea and that's
the reason we start this project now.

Honestly, who does not want to have a
heartful, peaceful man like him at his home...?
I myself have hosted in the last 6 years
hundreds of artists and musicians and I am
fascinated by the possibility of love and
communication they can bring in the world
and that's why I started to create special
conceptional houseconcert tours with artists
who have a deep wish to be not apart from
the people and share also some stories and
This here is a group photo from my last house
concert tour with the wonderful Amy Schmidt
from Nebraska / USA. Together we did 12
houseconcerts in 13 days in the south of
germany and Switzerland. Can you feel the
(healing) love tonight? ( Amy Schmidt is sitting
on the very right side and I am in the second
row with the blue cap and the white shirt)
The Adam Gallina house concert tour will
start on July 2nd in Duesseldorf and will end on
July 8th in Duisburg.
The concert with Adam playing the Hang
drums and letting the rhythm grow will take
around 60 minutes. The flow of the group is of
course also a main figure and including some
storytelling and caring for each other.
The idea of the concept is that the rhythm and
the connection will carry you and make you
happy deep inside and of course also a kind of
bringing you some inner peace. The hang love
Adam Gallina house concert is not just
temporary but the inner smile will still carry
you the next days and weeks and so it has a
much more effect when "normal concerts"
For some dates we still need hosts and people
to fill it with love. If you like to be a host you
don't need more than a good heart and
appreciation for the idea and to gather
around 10 + good people around. Friends,
colleges, or friends you have not met before
from the hospitality networks such as be
welcome, hospitality club or couchsurfing are
a good base.
The ground or living room need just to be big
enough so that we can create together a
loving, good, connected atmosphere.
Everyone who participates should give an
appreciating amount of what about a cinema
costs nowadays, with or without 3 D effect
and with popcorn and coke as you might
know it can be nowadays from 5 to 20 euro.
And I have also seen some very poor students
in Avatar 3D, yes I did... ;-)
The food should also be shared by everyone.
It would be nice if people bring along or
prepare different kind of food. It definitely
helps for the quality atmosphere everybody
cares for everybody...

Like an arrow a yellow, high tone passed through
his body in childhood. A friend of the family had
elicited it from the ground of a cooking pot. Since
that time Adam listens to the palpable world. He
speaks to the being-like objects and they speak to
him. Everything is sound. Every tone talks about
the true nature of the body out of which it arises.
Adam understands music as a spring of
transformation. Music shakes our reality awake
and extends our consciousness.

and artist studied Fine Arts and Music. [more 2]
Since 2009 he gives a concert with the ensemble
Manivolanti, a multicultural innovative sound
formation. In Workshops and private lessons for
percussion he is convincing with his humorous,
playful lightness, to experience rhythm - to be a
Adam lives in the tender, silent tones as much as
in ecstatic rhythms. Powerful, eloquent hands give
to all what may swing a melodious, pulsating
voice. His deep union with wild-beautiful nature
and a constant search for always a new language
for the timbres of life are reflected in his music.
His compositions and improvisations flow through
us, allow us to become one with a living, sensual
world of sound and rhythm. Rhythm of life.
For the musician it is natural that matter behaves
in such a way as we expect it to react. If we allow
objects to reveal themselves with their true being,
they will communicate in another language with
us. A common language - the language of music.
In certain cultures the instrument and the people
speak the same language, as for example the
African Tama. All tonal languages of Ghana can be
played on the Talking Drum.
