the best backup
22/10/2017 - blog

I have been some days with a computer failure and I wasn’t able to tell you about the next session before: it is as if we can’t do anything without those machines. Fortunately, folktales don’t need antivirus or backups: I count on you for that, because stories will be very safe if you told them again. And thanks to my brother Dani and his love for arts and crafts, I will also bring a bunch of bimbirimboies, with no additives nor added sugar, that we have been preparing digitally for all of you during this summer, while sharing jokes, laughter and ...

Stories in Diwali
17/10/2017 - blog

The Moon decides the exact day. It is celebrated on the new moon from October to November, namely in Amavasya, which means the moonless night, or the night of the dark moon. But darkness is not abundant during Diwali. On Diwali nights in India from ancient times thousand of oil lamps are lit to light up the way of the beloved ones, to begin a prosperous and auspicious year, to pray for the good of all. This year Diwali begins the 18th and finishes the 22th October, and it is a pleasure to celebrate it with my friends from the Indian Culture Centre. There will be dance, ...

Trees and stories
26/09/2017 - blog

Yesterday I went to the Botanic Garden to visit trees and stories. I like to go there often, is the perfect refugee for birds, nature friends and silence lovers. I stopped under the shadow of the trees where last April, during the Botanic Garden spring festival Planta’t (“Plant yourself”), I told some of the folktales and myths related with trees I have been collecting, and it is as if the stories were still there, among the whisper of the leaves, or the light playing between the branches. And it is as if the garden is transforming in a sort of mind ...

Asian Folktales in Guadalajara
09/06/2017 - blog

I have always felt a special connection with Middle East and Far East cultures: I am fascinated by Tibetan folktales, I cannot help but dance when I hear the Indian dhol or the tabla, my kitchen is always well stocked with spices, and one of my dreams is to travel the famous Silk Route. For the moment I can’t complaint, though, because I am constantly travelling around Asia through stories and songs. If you would like to travel with me, we can meet next 17th of June at the Storytelling Marathon of Guadalajara, which this year is devoted to Asia and will surely be ...
