Today I’m glad to write about A Storyteller Reads, a very interesting initiative by the storyteller Kamini Ramachandran inside her channel about MoonShadow Stories.
From the description: 'A Storyteller Reads' is a video series showcasing translated works by Singapore writers. The six five-minute-long videos feature storyteller Kamini Ramachandran performing the English translations of selected Malay, Tamil and Chinese poetry and prose, as well as bilingual readings in Malay and English.
I think that’s a very important and useful way to share storytelling around the world. I also add that this is so urgent, today, to find a way for knowing and understanding better each other.
I believe that telling and listening stories is the perfect way.
Translation is a power, a friend told me long ago and moreover in these days we must use it.
About MoonShadow Stories, it is Singapore's premiere storytelling entity co-founded by Ramachandran in 2004, with the aim of promoting the lost art of the oral narrative tradition. MoonShadow Stories strongly believes that if we can re-introduce the beauty and wonder of storytelling to adults, then children will benefit. Hence, we were the pioneer contemporary storytellers in Singapore to spearhead storytelling for adults.
