Contents:

One of each from the list below. Most information given here is extracted from the enclosed leaflet.

  • Rainstick – From the Atacama desert of Northern Chile, the rainstick or rainmaker gives us a lovely paradox: how can something from the world’s driest region, made from a cactus, sound like a tropical downpour? These rainsticks are made by artisan co-operatives using the eulychnia plant. Dead wood only is used – the green flesh of the plant has rotted away to reveal a soft interior, or copada, into which cactus needles can easily be inserted. The cylindrical, hollow stick is a natural amplifier, and once little pebbles and grit from the desert are sealed inside the sound can be created by letting them pour over the needles. Use your rainstick to call the rain.
  • Monkey Drum – Monkey drums are a popular instrument with children. They are so easy to play – a monkey could do it! Roll the stick in the palm of your hands. try and make different rhythms by changing the pace at which you roll.
  • Cha cha Maraca – These are made from seeds gathered in the Peruvian Amazon and then sewn together with colourful local material. They are a wonderful percussive instrument. They are incredibly tactile – just to hold them and roll them around your hands is satisfying. This product is completely sustainable and fairly traded.
  • Panpipes – From the mountains of Peru, panpipes are a wind instrument first made by the Incas. In mountain passes high in the Andes, men thought that to echo the haunting sound of the whistling wind would be to communicate directly with the Gods. The sound is made by blowing over the top of the pipes like a bottle.
  • Ocarina – Ocarinas are ceramic whistles from Peru in South America. Early types were known in ancient China, but the egg-shaped Ocarina got its name after being reinvented in 19th century Italy, after ‘oca’ meaning goose. Ocarinas are played like a recorder, except that the hands are held next to one another instead of one over the other.
  • Full colour information leaflet – all the details given above with colour pictures.
