We switched it up a bit this time, instead of having The Sheepdogs perform with homemade instruments we paired them up with award-winning Afro Cuban pianist Hilario Duran and drummer Reimundo Sosa so they could explore a new sound together. The results were AMAZING. I wish they’d all do a whole album together!
Hopefully this video gets you stoked to spend the weekend building instruments and exploring styles of music that you normally wouldn’t! Your submissions to our homemade instruments project have been amazing so far! I’ll be posting a gallery of submissions shortly!

Last week our Facebook Page hit 100,000! If it’s alright with you I’d like to celebrate this milestone with a whole bunch of giveaways! Thanks for hanging around on Booooooom every day, thanks for getting involved in the projects, and thanks for sending me all your friendly tweets and emails!
Here’s what’s up for grabs:

Last week we launched our “Made of Imagination” project with MTV, our biggest collaboration yet! In case you forgot already or didn’t see the original post, we wanna see who can make the most creative homemade instruments on the planet, and we’d love to see videos of you and your friends performing with them!
We’re also asking some emerging Canadian musicians to do the same kinda thing! The video above is the first of four that we’ve produced, and it features rising star Rich Aucoin.
Ready to make your own instruments???
