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.

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 ...

They asked me to tell the a story I told them long ago: they never got tired of listening to it, like. Because it is always something new happening when you listen with all your heart, specially a story like the Rāmāyaņa. Indian folktales and myths Storytelling in Catalan by ...
