Davide Friello - Handpan Music


For your wedding I thought of a magical, elegant and certainly very different musical experience.

The Hang or Handpan are the latest instruments invented in the world with an ancestral yet contemporary sound at the same time. The vibrations and the sweet melodies will envelop you and lead you into soundscapes of rare beauty and depth.

I am used to stages of theaters and festivals around the world but I particularly love intimate and intimate concerts.

At your wedding I can perform ONLY - Duo with Cello - Duo with Harp

I like to take care of every detail of my musical intervention together with the spouses or the organizers to ensure the best possible experience during your ceremony and your party.

I used their services for my wedding

I recently contracted Davide for my wedding in Viareggio which will take place in the spring. I can't wait and I can already tell that he turned out to be super professional, collaborative and you can feel the passion he puts into music and preparing for an event.

I hired him because I listen to his music on spotify every morning!

Non vedo l’ora di portare la mia musica insieme al violoncello al vostro matrimonio a giugno!!

50 years of marriage ...

We chose Davide Friello in duo with the classical harp for an original repertoire overflowing with infinite sweetness. For the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of our marriage we wanted something special, different .. not the usual classic wedding repertoire .. That we had when we got married 50 years ago ... now we are even more in love and younger inside !

Davide is super attentive to details, always smiling, nice presence and he gave us sublime moments with his music Handpan, the last invented instrument in the world.

I'll invite him again for our 100 years of marriage (hahaha)

Eravate bellissimi ed il sole di settembre splendeva su di voi ... un onore essere il vostro musicista celebrando l'amore dopo 50 anni!

Perfect choice for our wedding. My father, who had the pleasure of seeing him in concert at a Festival in Trentino, had reported it to us and we trusted him.

Apart from the professionalism and kindness of Davide who are already worth a lot, his music has delighted everyone!

With his beautiful instruments and his hands that seemed to dance on them, he performed various of his own original compositions and some improvisations as agreed with us.

We also dedicated a specific moment of listening to his music with his eyes closed together with all the guests sitting on the lawn in a circle and ... it was magnificent !!!

A ceremony within the ceremony! Stra recommended for an elegant, dreamy and different experience!
