Here on the island music is an important part of our lives. There are many ways that we use bamboo to make musical instruments. One of the instruments I love to make is a rain stick.
We have plenty of bamboo here and it is easy to find the supplies that I need to make different musical instruments. We also take the bamboo and make an acoustic instrument that uses 4 different sizes of bamboo. The bamboo is mounted on a stand that displays the bamboo in a line. Sticks are used to hit the bamboo and play the music. Other people will carve out a small reed of bamboo and make a nose flute to play.
Total Time: 4 to 5 hours
Yield: 1 rain stick
Wow beautiful bamboo rainstick. I bet the rainstick makes lovely music, enjoy & thank you for sharing the process!!
This just makes me so happy because can have summer time type of fun in all this bad winter weather!!
They are a lot of fun to make and the kids love them. I too enjoy the sound they make and they are so much fun to play with.
They are a great way to pass the time and the sound will relax you so much.
