Soft Rain in the Congo Rainforest

Artist: George Vlad
Mwagne National Park, Gabon

Calm rainy nights in the rainforest are magical – few other sounds in life can be so relaxing and meditative. 

The sounds of a rainy jungle are never the same. One night there will be big droplets falling on large flat leaves – loud but pleasantly splatty. Another night it might be smaller water drops falling on thin vegetation – resulting in a more diffuse and even soundscape. The insect calls vary as well, from thick, piercing choruses to a more sparse and relaxed palette. The density of raindrops can make it sound light and calm or wild and heavy. All of these aspects change constantly as clouds wash over the listener’s location, adding more movement and change to the sound. If you only listen to this sort of soundscape occasionally, it might all sound the same. Spending some time immersing oneself into rain sounds and a myriad little patterns will emerge. is a completely free streaming service of 800+ 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.
