stories

 

My repertoire includes folktales, myths and legends from my own tradition as well as from the rest of the world, along with chants, rhythms and gestures from different regions and traditions.

I usually tell in my mother tongues (Spanish and Catalan), but also in French, English or German when I travel abroad.

Here are my current storytelling sessions. If you need more information about an specific session, or you want to order a tailored session, you can contact me through the section contact.

night, in Kerala
Ring falls into the sea,
red thread slides on snow,
night raga sounds while the moon’s shiny scimitar
tinges the shadows, in Kerala.
