India’s myriad folk tales are filled with stories of enchanted creatures, such as the one about the Jackal who declared himself leader of all animals after falling into a vat of indigo dye. And the proud and selfish Hornbill, the dislikeable ruler of all birds, who was tricked into giving his precious crown to the Bulbul.
From the treasure trove of India’s much loved fables comes two fascinating tales of mischief and trickery, each with lessons for children. Join renowned storyteller Kamini Ramachandran as she narrates the enchanting stories of The Indigo Jackal and The Hornbill and the Bulbul, taken from the Panchatantra and Jataka fables. Enter a captivating world of colour and imagination with Lawrence Koh as he breathes life to these magical stories through a combination of technicoloured sand art and light, while musicians Raghavendran, Kumaran and Serene bring the sounds of the forest alive with their unique musical compositions and soundscapes.
