Songs of the Humpback Whale

Songs of the Humpback Whale

Have you ever listened to the album that energised the Save the Whales movement? 🎵
Biologist, Roger Payne, created the iconic album “Songs of the Humpback Whale” five decades ago and in a recent interview with WBUR explains how the record came to be. He describes the whale sounds as follows:
“It’s a direct emotional exchange. It’s like what happens if you look at a picture and it just moves you totally. There it is, and it hits you really hard.
“A lot of people weep when they hear these sounds. It hits them emotionally. And I’ve never wept when hearing them, but I come damn close.”
