The Palo de Lluvia, or Rain Stick is a bamboo reed with an especially magical sound. Inside the instrument are dozens of sticks placed diagonally and put in place by drilling holes in the bamboo. Once the sticks are in place, small dried beans, rocks, or seeds are added. The two ends of the bamboo are then sealed and turning the stick upside down causes the beans to fall and hit the criss-crossed sticks. This is what produces the mystical rainfall sounds of the palo de lluvia.
