and to present live with them his project all around Europe (France, Belgium, UK,Hungary).
Musician since his very young age (flute, guitar, saxophone,…) and french handpan pioneer, Tom Vaylo has settled since 2007 his place
in the handpan players community. Not only did he played in the most famous handpan festivals (Handpan Festival, HangOut UK, HUG festival,…),
