Welcome to the Okavango Delta, and the amazing sounds made by the wild creatures that live there! They communicate throughout the day and night with a spectacular range of calls, cries, rumbles, whistles and songs.
This album is a tribute to them, in the form of a day in their varied lives. It begins just after midnight with the haunting cry of the Scops owl…and ends 24 hours later with the rasping cough of a leopard on the prowl.
The Wild Creature Concert is presented without commentary to allow you in your imagination to believe that you are really there. Take your time to enjoy your day’s journey from midnight to midnight as you travel the animals across the largest and richest wetland in Africa.
Sound recordist Jeremy West spent over 3 months living in a tent in the Okavango Delta, recording the many creatures around him such as lions, hippos, hyenas, etc. Dozens of creatures were recorded, and then later identified by experts. The more prominent sounds are noted on the track listing, but, as you will hear, there are many, many others in the background. Recorded by Jeremy West, mixed by Steve Marshall.
Running Time: 56 minutes
