Manu Delago was born in Innsbruck, Tyrol, and took music lessons as a child in accordion and piano. As a teenager he mainly played drums for various rock bands. In 2003 he picked up the Hang which gradually turned into one of his main musical instruments.

After graduating from the Mozarteum, Innsbruck, in classical percussion, Delago moved to London and studied jazz drums at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, beginning his focus on the Swiss instrument Hang. Later he studied composition at the Trinity College of Music in London. After completing his studies, he worked as a composer, ensemble leader and musician. Since 2007 he has performed internationally in more than forty countries on six continents and provided music for film.

The Grammy nominated artist runs his own band, has collaborated with various artists such as Björk, Anoushka Shankar or Olafur Arnalds and has appeared as a soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra. „The intense travels by air and bus around the world have made me think about how I can contribute to sustainability and give something back to nature. This gave rise to the idea of developing an environmentally friendly counterpart to conventional concert tours," Manu Delago explains the motivation behind the project. To keep the lowest possible CO2 footprint the entire tour will be done by bicycle. All musical instruments and the required equipment for the live performances will be transported in specially built bicycle trailers. The travel party of six crew members will generate electricity by pedaling their bikes and using solar panels. For catering on the road, the crew will use their own snack boxes, which will be filled daily with homemade food from locals concert visitors. There should be no single-use plastic in the backstage catering or in the public area of the concerts. The aim is to operate as waste-free as possible. To share the experience with the audiences, people are encouraged to cycle or walk to the concert venues. If it's too far, audiences should take public transport rather than drive. "My goal is to inspire as many people as possible worldwide, besides the music industry, to pursue a sustainable lifestyle," says Manu Delago. The musician will publish a short film every day. Both as a tour diary and with current facts and recommendations on sustainability and environmental protection.
