The Thai Elephant Orchestra is, remarkably, just what it sounds like – the biggest band in the world!. The players, all former work elephants with nowhere to go, have been trained to play enormous percussion instruments, holding mallets in their trunks and sometimes trumpeting along.  Elephants seem to like to listen to music -- if you play music they'll come over, so assembling them into a band seemed a natural thing to do.  They’ve produced three albums which have received rave reviews.  The newest Asian music group!!!
