“Taketori” – A musical fable from Iain Morrison and Daibhidh Martin

Before “leaving” Scotland for some upcoming features & reviews, here is one more short journey to take with musician Iain Morrison and poet Daibhidh Martin. The lyrical tale is that of a man on the Isle of Lewis named Tormod who follows a sparrow along the coastline to a cave where he finds a Japanese man named Taketori, who has been searching for a place where his bag of golden seeds will take root and grow a tree that will bring riches to the people of the land. It turns out to be a hope as elusive as the sparrow Tormod finds flying in the distance when he returns to see if the tree has grown. Iain’s music and Daibhidh’s verse are brought to life here in a lovely animated video.
