“The 12 Days of Indigo”

 

With Christmas just around the corner its time of carols and festivities. This we are getting into the spirit of things with the help of some of our talented Research Assistants who created “The 12 Days of Indigo.” The lyrics were written by Hannah Keenan, Josh Smith, Jenny Hernandez, and Rodrigo Morales., and first appeared on the lab white board at Las Guacamayas over the summer.
In the run up to Christmas “The 12 Days of Indigo” have taken on a new form thanks to one of its creators, Josh. Not only is Josh an enthusiastic field worker, but he is also a talented folk musician from the band Canahan.
Check out Josh’s hilarious musical rendition of “The 12 Days of Indigo”.
