Calm atmosphere in the Borneo rainforest

Artist: George Vlad
Tawau Hills Park, Malaysia
Recommended charity: 1stopBorneo

The soundscapes of the Borneo rainforest are some of my absolute favourite, both for their staggering diversity and their immersive beauty. The constant fog drip, the never-ending insect chorus, the incredible variety of bird, frog and mammal calls are fascinating. There are also more intangible things, like the gentle swells of activity happening every now and then, or the beautifully layered acoustics created by the rolling forested hills. is a completely free streaming service of 900+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
