It seems to me in the west there are lots of percussion groups that like to fancy themselves recyclers, they beat out rhythms on things others might look at and say that's garbage. However when I see this I think, looks like failure to transform the object into a musical instrument. If it were one of these cooking competition, and one of the ingredients were a pack of Cheetos, they just put the Cheetos on a plate and said bon appetite. Is this just a north western tradition that plays into the social norm that percussion is garbage? For example no one looks at a steel drum and says that's a piece of recycled garbage.
