Travel Video: Rimba Tubes Music from Santa Monica

California is full of street artists and some of them are so good they can’t do much but stop and appreciate their skills. Be it awesome dance or mind blowing music, it has it all. Some days back, I was at Santa Monica and was exploring the 3rd street Promenade, a beautiful walking street a couple of blocks away from the open ocean. I was walking through this street when I came across this street musician who was playing some unbelievably good music.

Rimba Tubes Street Musician at 3rd street Promenade, Santa Monica

This music was so different from anything I had ever heard in my life and when I saw the musical instrument, I was totally captivated for this was an instrument was made from PVC pipes. Snubby J, the street musician calls his creation ‘Rimba Tubes’. It is a homemade instrument that he made after being inspired by the Blue Man Group.

This musical instrument, which is a maze of PVC pipes makes such a cool hollow sound that I was entranced for the entire duration of his performance. I have never heard such kind of music before. Have you?
