About

Both EARTH TALES FROM AROUND THE WORLD recording’s will weave traditional storytelling and nature sounds with segues of world music. Many tales from oral tradition have been translated from their native languages. The EARTH TALES CD for children will include stories from the Maya of Central America, the Anishinabe of central North America, the Apinaye of Brazil, as well as tales from the Czech Republic, Tibet and Egypt. The EARTH TALES CD for youth and adults will feature stories from the Swahili of northeastern Africa, from the Kanienkehageh (Mohawk) of eastern North America, from the Creole of Martinique, from the Traveler folk of Scotland, from Italy, from the Maya and from parts of the Mediterranean region (Greek, Turkish, Italian and Jewish tales.)

A detailed budget has been created for the EARTH TALES project. Funding received through Kickstarter.com will support studio recording, sound engineering & mixing, clips of world music, graphic design, supplies, materials and an initial production run of 500 copies for each CD.

Entertaining and evocative, EARTH TALES FROM AROUND THE WORLD CD’s reveal ancient wisdom for living sustainably in our times. Your pledge can help save the environment for children of today—and tomorrow.

Thank You for your help and support!
