The rain stick is believed to have been invented by the Mapuches and was played in the belief it could bring about rainstorms. It was also found on the Chilean coasts, though it is not certain if it was made by the Incas. Rain sticks were originally made from any of several species of cactus but are usually made from bamboo today.

A rain stick is a rattle made of hollowed plant stalks which, when turned or shaken, produces a pattering sound similar to rain. The sound produced by the instrument has contributed to the common notion that the rain stick has historically been used in rituals to summon rain by indigenous peoples of arid climates. Despite this popular belief, the origin and history of the rain stick remains unclear.

Rain sticks are the perfect instrument for creating a calming and soothing atmosphere. Use it as a meditation aide or to spice up your next jam session!
