A nice wet day today with the sound of tires swishing past on the wet street and the drip of raindrops through the leaves. Many, many years ago, I was in a coffeehouse near Detroit listening to Odetta. As background for one of her songs she showed the audience how to make a rainstorm using only our hands to create the sound effects.

I had forgotten all about that night when I saw this on YouTube by a Slovenian jazz choir. Anyway, listen to the first 1:45 with your eyes closed while they make it rain.

Absolutely amazing! Who knew? Also, they didn't ruin the song by completely rearranging it.

Thanks for song! I had to share this with my daughters - both were is chorus not too long ago, I think they would get a big kick out of this. I had to listen to it a couple of times!
