The art of making Singing Bowls originates from Tibet and Nepal where they are made from an alloy of metals to produce unique sounds for healing and ritual purposes. The chiming sound created when the singing bowl is beaten helps to focus the mind and create an inner calm.
Machine made metal bowls are generally easier to play than traditional hand beaten bowls as they have a smooth polished finish which allows for a steadier movement, making them ideal for people learning or for children.
How to Play:
Rest the singing bowl in the palm of the hand.
Hold the striker in the middle with all fingertips pointing downwards.
Gently tap the striker against the side of the bowl to 'warm it up'.
With an even pressure, rub the striker clockwise around the outside rim of the bowl. Use a full arm movement just like stirring a big pan of soup.
Try to keep the striker straight and remember to apply pressure.
Let the sound build up slowly as the singing bowl picks up the vibration.
