Thunder and rain sounds – Asian rainforest soundscape

Artist: George Vlad
Lahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysia
Recommended charity: Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Thunderstorms sound absolutely fascinating in the rainforest. The constant sound of insects, birds and other wildlife creates a beautiful background for the slow rhythm of thunderclaps. Rain sounds a lot like diffuse noise at first and it takes a while for it to reach the undergrowth. When it finally permeates through the thick canopy, the microphones will start picking up the beautiful detail of water droplets hitting the vegetation. 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.
