Ahead of World Music Day on June 21, it’s time to celebrate all the lovely sounds around us. The event is also known as Fête de la Musique and originated in France in 1982 before spreading across the globe. While people around the world take to streets and concert halls to celebrate their music, we thought we’d share some of our favourite sounds too, all from Mother Nature. Here are musical sounds from our furry friends around the world. Click on the names of the animals and birds to learn more about them. Take a listen and spread the music!
