The rainstick is an instrument that originates from Chile. Used by the Diaguita Indians in the desert, the rainstick was said to bring rain during periods of drought. The use of rainsticks has also been observed in Native American and other South American cultures where they have been used for the same purpose. Today the rainstick is a popular musical instrument that is used throughout the world.
Playing a rainstick is very simple. Holding one at an angle will allow the internal cacti spines to pass through the instrument which creates the familiar rain-like sound. The rainstick can also be tapped or shaken to produce other percussive noises.
