This is Bart Hopkin, the doyen of junk and homemade instruments showing how to make a xylophone from nothing more than some driftwood and some towels. It sounds amazing and there is some very funky music going on here. Bart's site is www.windworld.com and his wonderful books, like "Musical Instrument Design" and "Making Musical Instruments with Kids" which are available from Amazon.
