During a few hours, an afternoon or a weekend you learn how to handle trash on a creative way. You start by building your own drum-kit out of trash. With 2 drum-sticks/spoons, pots, pans, cans, barrels, … we learn about rhythm and dynamism. Once that’s under control we start playing as a band. Together we make and tape our own song. Afterwards a little performance is possible.
