    No?
    Ever thought what it would/could be like?
    I had my own imaginations and kinda tried to put it on an instrumental song. Made this maybe 10-13 years ago. Composition, instrumentation, animal sounds, recording, mixing and uploading by "Frank Boba", a.k.a. me.

    Please feel free to share any thoughts... :cool:

    I hope no chimps or parrots were harmed in the making of this infectious upbeat swing through the tree canopy :>)
    Haha, nice work!

    Delightfully goofy and fun. I like it!

    If GuiTarzan ever becomes a movie, this tune would be in the soundtrack.

    somewhere over a rainbow (Ex-L.A. resident)
    I lived in Central America for 10 years in the 1990s. We bought a piece of land that was at the edge of a tropical rainforest. In fact, it was next to the only area left that still had a undisturbed biological corridor. A biological corridor is a area (usually 1000s of acres) that still connects the high mountains down through the lowlands and jungles and ends at the sea. The importance of these corridors is, it allows the wildlife to continue migration (for mating and feeding/hunting depending on season) from one area to the next without encountering deforestation. Some species will stop where there is deforestation and not continue due to fear of being exposed to predators including human hunters. If they stop they face starvation because the areas they were headed had in season food ripe and ready to be consumed. Different food crops ripen at different times of the year depending on altitude and seasonal temperature.
    We built a house and 3 small guest bungalows catering mostly to people studying the rainforest, the mountains and the wildlife and plant life. We used all the fallen lumber available to us on our land and our neighbors, never cutting down living trees.
    I encountered deadly snakes and non-venomous ones all the time, we had howler monkeys who lived in the trees on the land and would visit our roof right at sunup and bang away on the metal roofing. They seemed to enjoy doing it.
    We even encounter some big cats passing through. These cats could take down a human like nothing.

    The sounds of the rainforest are different depending on the time of day. In the morning it sounds like a riot of monkeys, parrots and insects all celebrating the new day. The early afternoons are quite and the evening has lots of local parrots squawking loudly as the return to their nests after a days feeding. At night lots of insect noise and occasional unidentified growls or roars.
    We kept our dogs in the house after dark,

    This song performed by my friends Strunz & Farah (from when I lived in L.A), has some fairly authentic recreations in the beginning and middle.
    But nothing is like hearing it in person. The insect noise that starts up after a rainstorm is deafening and it's almost impossible to speak over the noise. Lots of times, we didn't. We just sat and listened to the bugs being happy for the rain.

    OP, I enjoyed your music and the sound effects. Good job with blending them into the music. I know that can be difficult.
    Sorry I am just now writing this, I forgot to include my comments in my previous post. I got my story of living in the jungle written for you and got distracted and forgot to include my thoughts.
    Anyway, good job!

    I've been in the jungle in Central America. It is very cool.

    Cool tune too! It's happy.

    Nice work there!

    Oh, and to answer your question in the thread title, I took this picture two days ago in a jungle.
