Video: Jazz band plays inside giant wheel

Pedal powered musicians get the feet tapping and wheels spinning ... Nice

Here's a cheerful video that's put a smile on our faces and had as humming an upbeat tune all afternoon at towers as a jazz band performs at a carnival in Barcelona while being pedalled around inside a giant wheel.

The footage of the contraption, called Rodafonio, designed by Cesar Alvarez, is from a couple of years back but we reckon it's too good not to share. 

The music was apparently composed by Rodrigo Spagnuolo and arranged by Sebastian Cabra and Miguel Ramon, and everyone - including the three musicians and the two guys pedalling - appears to be having a great time.

You can find lots more videos of it here. Nice.
