It’s the instrument that’s plagued the World Cup so far, drowning out match commentary and numbing minds with its incessant drone. But surely the world’s most cutting-edge and revered musicians could put one to good use?
At Glastonbury, as a nation held its breadth on the eve of the England versus Germany game (pausing that breath-holding only to – you guessed it – blow into a vuvuzela horn) we challenged our favourite bands to show us their best honk on the plastic devil-trumpet.
Please note: There’s so much vuvuzela on the new Kele solo album that he politely declined, having spent the past 3 months in a studio listening to looped vuvu-parps. Which is fair enough.
Please also note: A vuvu-parp is a technical term for the sound a vuvuzela makes.
Final note: There’s no vuvuzela on the Kele album really. He, like us, just hates the bloody things.
