Rainforest Pavilion Records founder Jenli drops debut album, 'Dear Diary'

Jenli, the founder of Rainforest Pavilion Records, is known for her mesmerising soundscapes and deeply personal stories which she weaves effortlessly into her productions.

Her debut album 'Dear Diary' is a profound journey of introspection and self-expression and is set to captivate audiences with a rich tapestry of nine intimate tracks that showcase her flair for innovative electronica and ambient music.

The album is a blend of lush textures, warm melodies, and thoughtful lyrics that will leave a lasting impression on listeners.

First single, 'You're Not Ready', was released on May 22 and serves as a powerful introduction to Jenli's unique sound—a mix of intensely introspective ambient, electronic, ethereal, and pop vibes.

'Empty Playgrounds', the follow-up track which dropped June 5, continues her warm, atmospheric sonic repertoire, and showcases a bit more of her vocal artistry. It's a poignant tribute to the children of Gaza, with all proceeds going to the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF).

Beyond her music, Jenli's story is one of innovation and dedication.

As a member of the Rainforest Pavilion collective based in Bali, she has been part of efforts to raise funds and conserve rainforest land, protecting over 407 hectares through events held from 2017 to 2019.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective paused its events to reassess its direction. This reflection led to the creation of Rainforest Pavilion Records, adding a new dimension to their mission of conservation and creativity.
