A Bach Prelude Played On Boomwhackers Is Poetry In Motion

Boomwhackers are mostly used in elementary schools, to teach children about making music in an inexpensive way. They are accessible, easy to play with, easy to store and to maintain. Everything a REAL instrument such as percussion or piano is not!

Now this group of musicians have used boomwhackers to play Bach’s prelude. Not sure what would Bach say about this, but it sure is fun to watch! Who would have thought that something as complex musically as Bach could be recreated using this simple tubes. Playing it looks like hard work though, the guys must have done about hundred squats swapping the tubes!

Watch it, share it with your friends, and look up the real thing! Maybe Bach will not turn in his grave…
