Music for the Forest is a new initiative launched in May 2022 by JM International and Rainforest Partnership. Musicians were invited to submit original and earth-inspired songs from different genres - soul or singer-songwriter, highlife or hip-hop, folk, jazz, rock or tango, classical music and every other type of music.

Music for the Forest is an online music celebration bringing together artists from all over the world who use the power of music to inspire, awaken and spread joy, with rhythms of hope to generate a space of understanding and connection with our planet's forests!

Submitted works were featured on the World Rainforest Day (WRD) Playlist/Event, screened during the WRD conference on June 22nd, and throughout WRD celebration events globally.

You can still listen to these remarkable 28 songs inspired by mother nature and showcasing the beauty, importance, threats, and challenges of forests via the dedicated youtube playlist.

JMI will announce the Green Note winner at the beginning of September… stay tuned!
