Bottle Music Beats (SPONSORED)

The Streets Come Alive with Canned Tunes

— March 28, 2012 — Lifestyle
This fun, quirky and purely editorial sponsored article is brought to you by Jarritos.

While big names like Jay-Z and Kanye West are ripping up the charts with big budget deals and costly music videos, another craze has started to blossom among urban dwellers: bottle music beats. The talented, tune-savvy individuals responsible for this development are far from your average musicians, and get off on the pure joy of using the most basic of instruments to create world-renown acoustics.

From kids to twenty-somethings, youth from around the world are popping sodas and turning their leftover bottles into works of art. Although this is being done all over the world, the real inspiration comes from Central America. In a place where the weather is warm and bottled beverages are easily accessible, down-to-earth music-lovers have learned how to make the most of these recyclable goods. The result is pure bliss, as music fills the streets and reminds listeners that you don't have to be Kanye to gain recognition from passersby.

If you're feeling especially groovy you can try your hand at some classic hits like the Rolling Stones, or even some saucy Latin numbers. Whatever bottle beats you choose, just be sure to hit the streets to share your talents with those who care. You never know what fans you'll pick up!

Gain a little street cred and put those leftover soda bottles to good use by performing some cool, canned beats.
