Welcome to Creative Corner - a place for you to express, profess, create and inspire all things ethnobiology! Our inaugural post comes from Denise Glover, your SOE treasurer and a visiting professor of Anthropology at the University of Puget Sound. If you would like to contribute music, art, poetry or whatever it may be, please contact web liaison Chelsey Geralda Armstrong (email@example.com).
The Ethnobiology Song (Music by Denise Glover; words by Denise Glover with help from Dana Lepofsky)
A few years back, we started a tradition of jamming at our annual SoE conferences. I wrote this song for that purpose, and to share during our "variety show" at the Columbus conference (2011). I just recently recorded the song in a mini home recording studio; this is a one-woman show since I'm playing mandolin, guitar, and bass (and singing)--thanks to overdubbing, of course. This version is not perfect, but I hope you enjoy!
