Can you hear the music of the vuvuzela?
Here are some opinions on the vuvzela from Wikipedia:
Vuvuzelas have also been blamed for drowning the sound and atmosphere of football games. Commentators have described the sound as “annoying” and “satanic” and compared it with “a stampede of noisy elephants”,an elephant passing wind, “a deafening swarm of locusts”, “a goat on the way to slaughter”, “a giant hive full of very angry bees”,and “a cow being given a surprise enema”.
It made me wonder if sometimes I am just blowing a lot of hot air and making noise in employee engagement. I hope not. I was inspired to watch this BBC piece on how to make music with the instrument. Watch this performance by Bryon Wallen:
Are you making music or noise?
