Album Notes
Margo McLoughlin is a Canadian storyteller and writer, currently living in Victoria, British Columbia. A graduate of the Harvard Divinity School, where her studies included Pali and Sanskrit, Margo translates the Jataka (the stories of the Buddha’s former births) from Pali. She performs her own adaptations, bringing to life the world of Ancient India, with evocative images, and the use of original text. JATAKA: Stories and Music of Buddhist India is a live recording of a performance which took place in 2005 in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Margo has worked as a chaplain at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and is currently part of a team at the Fetzer Institute in Michigan, which is developing a model for using stories of generosity to create dialogue within organizations and community groups.

A wonderful CD. Margo's tellings superbly embody the Buddhist jataka tradition. Her voice is beautiful. The music works wonderfully. Even the packaging and production are delights.
