The next time a child’s parents impose the importance of eating all vegetables on the dinner plate, perhaps they should try a new tactic inspired by Nan Weidong and Nan Weiping of the Vegetable Orchestra. The two have managed to make a living off carving instruments from various vegetables.

By hollowing out parts of various large vegetables and experimenting with their dampness, these brothers create musical instruments that can successfully substitute for their conventionally built counterparts. The duo plays a variety of music, from traditional Chinese tunes to folk to even popular pop songs. Apart from being totally innovative and simply mind-blowing, these designs by Nan Weidong and Nan Weiping can also be eaten! However, this could upset the makers, as it does take time to make these unique devices.
