Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom

Project Overview

 

 

Live Audio

 

Esta Montaña D'enfrente (The Mountain Ahead Burns)

A fiery start to the show

 

 

Morenica (Dark One)

Not your normal wedding song...mostly because the bride sails off with sailors at the end

 

 

O Mis Hermanos  (O My Brothers)
(story & song)  

Homage to the Greek communities destroyed and often forgotten in W.W.II.

Theatrical narration is a part of Tales, in which music and story flow together seemlessly. Here you can listen to some of this narration which goes right into the song.
(If you'd like to go straight to the song, just skip ahead to 1:52)

 

 

Cocek!

Driving dance rhythms (another side of the Ensemble)

La Reina Xerifa Mora / Hermanas Reina Y Cautiva (PBS Edit)
(Sisters Queen & Captive)

How does one of the social elite come to the conclusion that it is better to give up a kingdom, becoming a willing fugitive alongside a captive servant? 

 

A La Nana / Levantóse El Conde Niño
(For Grandmother / The Young Count Arose)

A raucously upbeat (and rather gruesome) tale preceded by a prayer for the safe keeping of children.

Una Noche Al Borde De La Mar
(One Night by the Sea)

From Sofia, Bulgaria from the mid 1930s comes a tale about a sailor who sails into the storm, driven by memories of his lover.

Por Que Llorax Blanca Niña? 
(Why Weep, Fair One?)

From Sarajevo, a haunted song of love and betrayal.
