Whether it is paper cups or bottles or pipes, there is no dearth of recyclable things that can be turned into homemade musical instruments. However, a group of women in Japan seem to have taken the game a notch higher after they used a toy train and bottles to play music.
A clip from a Japanese television show feature members of AKB48, a musical group consisting of over 130 women, arranging bottles along a toy train track. Interestingly, the arrangement is done in such a way that when the train passes through, hitting the bottles in perfect sync, it plays the ‘William Tell Overture’.
