Gaia Dance EcoSongs

by Gaia Dance

I write EcoSongs of a particular type. My EcoSongs consist of positive, celebratory, uplifting, empowering eco-lyrics set to famous out-of-copyright song-tunes, anthems, carols and hymns. Of the 87 EcoSongs I have written, 47 are recorded by various artists, from children’s choirs to professional singer/musicians.

I pay £50 to a singer/musician who records one of my EcoSongs and sends it to me in MP3 format. Below is a list of 87 EcoSong titles, recorded and not yet recorded, to give a better idea of the range covered.

I am keen to get the EcoSong genre known as others might like to contribute to this style of composition. (Especially if they are not great musicians themselves!).

These are two EcoSongs on YouTube

Also, Ecologisers have a ten year project to promote, popularise and publicise the EcoSanta concept. Further details are on the EcoSanta website. Again, this is a project that very much relies on and needs grassroots support to ‘make it happen’.
