Ringed Plover by Julian Bhalerao
Jungles of Sumatra

Jungles of Sumatra

J-L Hérelle

Powerful, evocative wilderness recordings from one of the world's most beautiful and most threatened habitats make this atmosphere CD one of the best in the world. Pure natural sounds envelop one - like the heat of a tropical jungle, lulling one into a sense of security and sensual pleasure.

From the mountain songs of babblers, barbets and bulbuls to the lowland calls of the Asian Fairy Bluebird. From the Sumatran forests with drongos, kingfishers and broadbills, to storm filled evenings with owls, cicadas, leafbirds and the astonishing sounds of gibbons and Siamang.

Fifty minutes from Sumatra are preceded by a ten-minute concert from the nearby island of Java.

This CD was previously sold as Jungles of Sumatra 1, Sittelle Ref. SIT 30017-2.

The trogon appearing on the front cover does not feature on the CD. It is an endangered species and few recordings of its song or call are available.
