Yet more organology

vuvuzela

The star of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was the long trumpet vuvuzelawhich enabled spectators to feel as if they were in the middle of a beehive.

The Guardian commented,

Some people say the vuvuzela originates from a tribal instrument used to summon people to important meetings. Others say it comes from a plastics factory in south China. The truth is unclear.
