pi-rain-sticks-lrgThe rain stick comes from the Atacama Desert in Chile and is a truly natural instrument. Rain sticks are made from a particular type of cactus which, when it dies, is dried out. The thorns are then cut off and pushed back into the dried cactus branch so that the pointed tips of the thorns are on the inside. The branch is then filled with small stones and blocked off at each end.
