Handpans are a unique instrument created in Switzerland around 2000. When Jenny Robinson heard it for the first time she knew she wanted that music in her life. She set out on a quest to learn how to build them. She also made all her own tools to create the handpan. Based in Madison, Jenny is now one of only a few women handpan builders in the world.
