Recorded in Mollem National Park in the Western Ghats of South India. The sounds of many kinds of birds, insects and large animals combine to make Rainforest India a unique forest soundscape.
The heat of the daytime forest, the green leaves, insects, birds and animals. They almost seem to crawl out of the speakers as you listen.
The sheer variety of sounds in Rainforest India make it very atmospheric and highly entertaining to listen to. Cicadas drone in the background while many kinds of bird calls are heard, close and far away. Insects fly by. You can also hear the sound of large animals pushing through the forest.
Some sounds are quite regular, others randomly come and go, but nothing is out of place. This is a field recording that fully captures the rich sound of an Indian rain forest.
At over 30 minutes this is one of our longest nature soundscapes. Ideal for taking a half-hour rest-break or blocking out unwanted sounds while working.
Declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1969 and renamed Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary. The core area became Mollem National Park in 1978.
At 240 square kilometres the sanctuary is the largest protected area in Goa. The sanctuary is famous for its snakes, particularly the King Cobra and the Dudhsagar Falls (literally Sea of Milk). The parkland is also home to a community of nomadic buffalo herders known as the Dhangar.
Rainforest India was compiled from field recordings made in 2010 and uploaded by byronbyron on Freesound. Freesound is a collaborative online database of Creative Commons Licensed sounds.
