Machine made metal bowls are generally easier to play than traditional handbeaten bowls. They have a smooth polished finish which allows for a steadier movement, which makes them ideal for people learning the skill and for children. Hand beaten bowls have a more complex and rich range of sounds, but to play them well you need a serious knack!
HOW TO PLAY:
Rest the singing bowl in the palm of the hand; hold smaller bowls on the fingertips. 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.
