See? Elephant Orchestra Really and Truly Exists

In case I didn't stress this enough on the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour last night, I would like to make it clear that the Thai Elephant Orchestra is made up of actual elephants. Trained ones, of course. It just doesn't get more wonderful than that, even if the end result isn't exactly danceable. The orchestra is based in Lampang, Thailand, and has released three albums to date, expanding from six elephants on the first to fourteen on the third. If you won't believe your ears, maybe you'll believe your eyes after you see this video...

  1. Those elephants of the Thai Elephant Orchestra are amazing. This kind of music will be perfect to use as a background in jungle tours.
