Fascinating birdsong in the Congo rainforest

Artist: George Vlad
Ivindo National Park, Gabon
Recommended charity: WCS Gabon

This is a field recording I made in a village in Central Gabon on my expedition to the Congo basin rainforest. We stopped to buy fruit from a village and it sounded so good that we decided to spend the night with a very welcoming local family. 5 minutes from the main road we found this gorgeous wild banana grove where a myriad birds were singing. 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.
