Part of my most recent public anthropology work involves teaching songwriting in the prison systems in Sweden, Italy and the United States and using cowriting as a method of deep knowing and intercultural communication. In July 2017, together with Sardinian singer and ethnomusicologist, Gigi Oliva, I led a songwriting workshop at the "Carcere di Uta," a men's prison outside of Cágliari, Sardegna (Italy), to inmates enrolled in the music program, there. Below is the song that they wrote as a group (recorded with permission by Gigi Oliva), "L'effetto dell'Estate" (The Effect of the Summer) recorded onsite in the prison on August 1st, 2017.
