Ignas the Woodpecker


I'm Ignas from Lithuania. And what I've been up to lately is making percussion instruments. I've made quite some experimental sounding objects, including a cajon, an improvised double sided cowbell, a xylophone-necklace for kids, a bucket and pot kit on a rack for street performance, i've even tried to make a 'hang drum' (with tons of effort but sadly not as much success), etc. I mostly work with wood.

A folding balafon is something I've created a few years ago.
It used to accompany me in my rucksack during my early travels, and it received quite some positive feedback from various audiences here and there.

After I returned home and settled down in my hometown in Lithuania, I'm taking the opportunity to continue this work.
Since the start I've been receiving encouraging feedback and I hope this project is going to grow.
