We’re very happy to share an ethereal collaboration between The Trouble Notes & Benny Bettane. We first met Benny at the Pantribe New Years Eve party in Belgium. Benny is not only one of the premiere handpan players in the world, he is also a top class person and friend of our group.
To start of the year, Benny and Bennet wrote this song together and posted a reel on our social media channels that had a lot of views and engagement! Finally when we arrived in Kortrijk, we had the chance to meet again and this time work on the song with the full group! This video was filmed after jamming around for an hour together in the Magnolia's House in Kortrijk, Belgium. Indeed it is not the most exciting setting in the background, but the sound and the energy in the room was really great! There's a great combination of spiritual melodies and groovy rhythms!
