Bajinn was envisioned in 2016 by Ortal Pelleg, a musician who is one of the few craftsmen of Hand Pan in the world. Ortal wanted to create an instrument of his own, one that would be accessible, affordable, and would enable its listeners to transcend instantaneously into a higher mode of consciousness.
It is a beautiful combination between an acoustic shell, crafted from bamboo, and aluminum tubes, suspended in the air by strings. Fused by ancient knowledge and contemporary craftsmanship, Bajinn produces a refreshingly unique sound, with a long acoustic decay time of up to 45 seconds in average.
In the spring of 2018 Bajinn was ready for production and the team has set sails to find the right manufacturers for each and every part. The production process consists of 3 parts: hand crafting the bamboo bowls, attaching the aluminium frame and finally assembling all other parts together.
Bajinn was launched in an Indiegogo campaign on October 2018, offering an opportunity to own one of the first Bajinns ever made and be part of musical history in the making. The campaign shattered Indiegogo funding goal in less than 24 hours, and by December 2018 the campaign was more than 550% funded.
