"...The poem flows with a rhythm true to its ancient predecessors...

...the delivery runs seamless and confident for the entire 50 minutes…

The Mariner’s Song is quite simply very entertaining..."

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK

Simple but powerful

 

Beautiful, lyrical journey

A must see for any fan of 'spoken word'

Wonderful weaving of the epic and personal

Thought provoking. Evocative. Highly recommended!

This is a sophisticated storytelling piece… Great solo performance

Rajan is stunning to watch as he fills the lovely space with his presence.

His storytelling was compelling and vivid

Took me back to a memorable trip I went on with a school mate and my dad...

...superb storyteller...had the audience spellbound with minimal props and made them all want to follow the mariner's call...
