"Forge Ahead" is a jam-style piece that I originally wrote for my first handpan, an Australian-made creation known as the 'Pi'. After acquiring my Saraz, I decided to re-adapt the 12-bar melody to the new pan, and add extended groove sections to feature moments of handpan improv as well as the wonderful cajon playing of Tsoof Baras. This song also features the unique percussion instrument known as the asalato, beautifully played by Tsoof.
