Inspiring Reforestation: the Forest Man of India with Music of the Plants

In the verdant landscapes of Assam, India, a groundbreaking partnership unfolded during the Smily Experience: Music of the Plants and Smily Academy joined forces for a unique event.

Inspiring Reforestation: Jadav Payeng’s Journey as the Forest Man of India

Highlighting this collaboration was the participation of Jadav Payeng, renowned as “The Forest Man of India.”

Jadav “Molai” Payeng (born 31 October 1959) is an environmental activist and forestry worker from Majuli, popularly known as the Forest Man of India. Over the course of several decades, he has planted and tended trees on a sandbar of the river Brahmaputra turning it into a forest reserve. He was born in the indigenous Mising tribe of Assam.

Celebrating Environmental Stewardship: Honoring Jadav Payeng’s Contributions

Jadav Payeng was honoured at a public function arranged by the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University on 22 April 2012 for his achievement. He shared his experience of creating a forest in an interactive session, where Magsaysay Award winner Rajendra Singh and JNU vice-chancellor Sudhir Kumar Sopory were present. In the month of October 2013, he was honoured at the Indian Institute of Forest Management during their annual event Coalescence.

In 2015, he was honoured with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in India. He received honorary doctorate degree from Assam Agricultural University and Kaziranga University for his contributions.

Empowering Environmental Education: The Smily Experience with Music of the Plants


Jadav Payeng’s remarkable reforestation efforts, transforming barren lands into thriving ecosystems, have earned global acclaim. At the Smily Experience, he encountered plant music through Music of the Plants’ innovative devices, which translate botanical vibrations into captivating melodies.

Smily Academy, an influential organization dedicated to environmental education and sustainable development, played a pivotal role in facilitating this collaboration. This isn’t the first time Music of the Plants and Smily Academy have joined hands; a previous article on our blog delves into our shared commitment to environmental awareness and education.

Through their immersive Smily Experience, they offer a platform that seamlessly integrates cultural enrichment, environmental consciousness, and experiential learning.

Sounds of Change: Jadav Payeng  explores Music of the Plants

In an Instagram post, Payeng lauded the project as a visionary initiative fostering unity between humanity and nature, emphasizing the multifaceted capabilities of the devices, boasting over 100 distinctive sounds.


This collaborative endeavor serves as a poignant ode to the interconnectedness of all life forms and underscores the significance of nurturing our bond with the natural world.

Through the power of music, art, and collective action, we can contribute to the preservation of our planet’s precious ecosystems. The synergistic partnership between Music of the Plants, Smily Academy, and influential figures like Jadav Payeng underscores our collective potential to enact meaningful change for a sustainable future.

Exploring Earth Day in Italian Schools

Exploring Earth Day in Italian Schools

On April 23, schools throughout Italy celebrated Earth Day, embracing a unique educational journey during the school year. Through action research workshops conducted with the support of teachers and experts, and Andriani Education, an extraordinary project emerged, named “Earth, I Care for You… I Protect the Plants.”

Objective: Connecting with the Plant World through Music

The main goal of this project is to introduce students to plants, harnessing the power of plant music. The aim is to foster appreciation, respect, and care for plants as an essential part of life on Earth.

Key Tool: Bamboo M – A Synergy of Technology and Learning

A crucial element of this educational journey was the use of the Bamboo M device, providing vital support for students to understand and perceive the pulsating vitality of plants. Teachers, through a dedicated training course led by a music teacher, fully explored this tool, gaining valuable insights.

Classroom Experiences: Engaging and Creative Approaches

Among the various classroom experiences, the activity led by teachers Dina Pozzato, Marina Sambo, and Tiziana Voltolina in the fifth grade at Ballarin Primary School in Valli di Chioggia, Chioggia 3 Comprehensive Institute, stood out. Students had the opportunity to listen to music produced by one of the plants cultivated in the school using Bamboo M sensors. Inspired by this adventure, they expressed their feelings and emotions through drawings and words.
