This is a field recording made in May 2013 of Amazonian Howler Monkeys (Alouatta monotypic)
It was recorded during the rainy season when the forrest is totally flooded, which gives the recording a wonderful acoustic ambience almost like being in a large cathedral.
The background ambience also includes a diverse chorus of birds, including:
Parrots, Hornbills, Parakeets, Toucans and many other un identified birds. There is some light splashing of water at the beginning which then subsides.
