Tuber Tuba

No Soup For You

It's a green party, of sorts. The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra, which performs on instruments made of fresh vegetables (yep, that's right) will play at Britain's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. The 11-strong group carve their produce before every show, using celeriac bongos, carrot recorders and the multi-vegetable “cucumberphone”. They play a range of music from contemporary to house, jazz to classical. The audience is usually offered fresh vegetable soup made from the instruments after shows. But hungry fans in Huddersfield will be disappointed - health and safety regulations mean soup is banned.

FOOTNOTE: The astound of music.

Do you think they might replace American Rap?
Looks like they had fun doing this.
