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!
