I could make killer prog with a kazoo (and did once, when I played Bloomdido's blazing sax solo from Gong's "Master Builder" from memory!  My friends were cracking up!!)

As per many enthusiastic reviewers, an ambient pop band called Sigur Rós can make "killer prog" with what sounds like a $89.99 keyboard and some half-hearted meowing. 

Could one blow a vuvuzella in a proggity-proggous-proggly way?

The only case I can think of where people are 'Misinterpreting the term Prog' is when they call the band Shakti a Prog-Rock Band.

I've listened to them and I didn't hear any Electric Guitars, or Electric Bass, or Rock-Styled Drums, or even Drum Machines.
Without any of those instruments, I couldn't ever consider Shakti a Rock Band.
