LAMPANG, THAILAND: An elephant sanctuary in Thailand has trained a group of five elephants to play percussion instruments, xylophones and an elephant-sized harmonica. They've released their first tune, "Chang, Chang, Chang," which means "Elephant, Elephant, Elephant," and is a child's song in Thai. Each elephant holds an instrument and plays it when prodded by its mahut. The next song they are learning is "Happy Birthday to You." This same center has trained elephants to paint, and the paintings have been sold with profits going to benefit the elephant programs.
