I think there may have been some issues with the bezier spline, that have been
addressed post-v-3.7
I didn't have a chance to render this in 3.7.1-beta.8, but I'd guess it might
look better.
I'd say either install the beta and try it, or use a different spline type.

I must confess, I had to look up "vuvuzela" and was apprehensive about the
search results, as it sounded like it might be something NSFW.   :D
