2012 - Bellart description for BElls – capture from website in 2012
“The BElls is a “musical instrument” derived from the “steel drum” and created by hand, sculpting and shaping the metal with hammer blows, to print a resonant and harmonic sounds determined by the craftsman, from this derives the name “sound sculpture. It is extremely harmonious, very melodic, and being handmade, no two are alike.” (wayback capture from 15.6.2012, translated with deepl)
Notice: In the Bellart description seemingly it is not referred to the originators of “Hang” /PANArt. (Other related instruments are mentioned).

Notice: In the following documentary “Vom Hang zu Handpan” is mentioned that Bells does not want to be called a “Handpan” cause this would refer to a piece of bread in spanish.
