Winner Folk Music "The Eggplant" Song

This is huge... for the 4 week session of BAM folk music class this past January we worked on making our own Rain Sticks. We learned about rain sticks and how they were used to bring on "the rain" in native cultures. We painted and glued and tied and filled our rain sticks. You can see they are very cool and very unique! At the same time we practiced singing the Norman Greenbaum's "The Eggplant that ate Chicago." Now we get to see it all put together in a wonderful, joyful, playful production. Thanks for all the help of my co-creator, Yun-Yun Cai, aka the "Yakster" Enjoy!
