What do you think the 2010 World Cup will sound like? We’ll certainly give it a bit of our local flavour. It will most likely be a sea of vuvuzelas of all shapes and sizes, making all kinds of different sounds. Today we hear from a man who creates sound from kelp—and these instruments are not your standard plastic versions!
