The YouTuber who's been making musical instruments out of produce for 11 yearsJunji Koyama, a prolific YouTuber and elementary school teacher has been making flutes and horns out of produce - fruits and vegetables - for over 11 years now. Koyama also records himself playing a song on each of his instruments, which range from carrots to radishes to, in one case, a dandelion stem. They all sound great.
Below, for example, is an ocarina made from a carrot. "Lightly Row" has never sounded better, including when you played it at your third grade recorder concert.
If you seek a more religious experience, here is "Amazing Grace," which Koyama plays on a slide whistle made from a cabbage
And who can forget the fruit? Please enjoy "Mary Had A Little Lamb," on an orange ocarina, as well as another rendition of "Lightly Row" (song of the summer!) on an adorable papaya melon.
Occasionally, Koyama ventures outside the realm of produce. Once, for example, he made an ocarina out of a tube of toothpaste, and in 2009, he provided the internet with a vital how-to on making an egg flute.
But mashable.com reports how fruit and veg are his bread and butter. And perhaps these videos urge people to eat more carrots and learn how to play an instrument.
