Lake Baikal is the world’s largest lake by volume, and it is remotely situation in Russia’s Far East. It also happens to occasionally create natural drums and instruments out of the ice that forms in winter. Located in a specific part of the lake, the ice that is formed can be used as different drums and instruments for the enjoyment of any in the area.
This unusual but entirely natural phenomena was discovered by accident. The wife of one of the drummers slipped and fell down. As she landed on the ice, she made a rather musical ‘boom’ sound and her husband was immediately intrigued. They then started drumming and tapping on the bits of ice, and soon found they could create haunting melodies. This is the result of their experimentation.
