Tongue Tied & Twisted with master storyteller, Peter Chand

Thursday 26th April 2018 7.30 p.m.  at Bishops Wood Centre, Crossway Green, Stourport DY13 9SE

Come to Bishops Wood for a night out of high-quality, ENTERTAINING storytelling with friends and family in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere; 

A family duo of master storyteller and live DJ adds a fresh twist to South Asian fables gathered from Punjabi elders living in the Black Country.

Punjabi/Midlands storyteller Peter Chand builds performs ancient stories, poems, riddles, songs and prayers that have entertained people across centuries.

DJ nephew Pavan provides an atmospheric cinematic musical soundscape – weaving South Asian music with street sounds and verbatim voices.

Storytelling used to play a huge part in the lives of many South Asian families as people learned life lessons through stories. But the tradition of passing folk tales down through the generations is dying out. This show preserves a rich collection of stories collected from Punjabi elders at Asian Groups throughout the Black Country.

‘Transports the listener with remarkable energy and great expression… spellbinding.’
