The Secret Forest LamentSQ.jpg

NEW SONG RELEASE

The Secret Forest Lament

The Secret Forest Lament was inspired by my reading the book The Secret Forest, by Charles Bowden, published in 1993 by the University of Arizona Press. The book describes the cultural destruction, and the destruction of the landscape itself, of the rare Dry Tropical Forest that grows in the southern area of Sonora, Mexico. The song is a lament echoing the book. Charles Bowden was a courageous journalist, defender of environment and justice. Jack Dykinga, the photographer for the book, has shared his photographs for this project. This song was made possible through the financial support of Utah Humanities, The Utah Division of Arts and Museums, and those who support my projects through patreon.com/katemacleod. Fir further details about this song see the NEW MUSIC page.
