An orchestra with a difference


Most of the world's orchestras are comprised of up to a hundred musicians, including sections of string, brass, woodwind, and percussion.

The Spaghetti Western Orchestra though are a little different. For a start there are only five of them, and they've toured the world playing a variety of instruments including asthma inhalers, rubber bands, tree branches, rubber gloves and even a box of cornflakes.

Lucy Hockings was treated to a front row performance in the studio.
