Boomwhackers!

US Amazing tuned percussion tubes      27/03/22

Instruments which are accessible to all and can be played in groups are great fun, especially those which you can smack against your own legs (and presumably other body parts!). Boomwhackers are tuned percussion tubes which can be struck to play all your favourite hits, provided you have enough arms and legs to whack with/on ! This video from Havard Thud is an energetic and collaborative cover of the Outkast classic 'Hey Ya!'. Here's some more info on the instrument:

Our Boomwhackers Tuned Percussion Tubes are wonderful and unique instruments that have already brought the joy of music to hundreds of thousands people. (Yes, we're counting kids as people.) We sell our products primarily at the dealer and distributor level. While the majority of our sales are in the U.S., we also sell to Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China (Hong Kong), Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, and Switzerland.

And in a mildly related note, here's a video detailing the recent life of Andre 3000 from Outkast - an insightful look into his apparent apathy for making music, despite huge acclaim and legendary status from fellow artists:
