Rinky Dink Soundsystem at Glastonbury 2008

Rinky Dink is a 1962 instrumental hit by Dave "Baby" Cortez.

Rinky Dink is a mobile musical sound system that operates on power provided by two bicycles and solar panels. It tours the world as part of many musical festivals and parties and is a prime example of how green electricity can be generated and used to power things. As well as being powered by bicycle, the system itself is moved around using specially converted bicycles. It has been featured on BBC Newsnight and Panorama programs.

The Rinky Dink was also responsible for powering the first bicycle-powered digital recording in history—Live & Pedal-Powered (1995) by Baka Beyond.
