Dear ZIPANG friend
The Enheduanna Society (ESoc) is pleased to announce the launch of its Zipang Recording Project.
The purpose of this project is to record the repertoire of re-told Mesopotamian stories based closely on academic transactions and developed over the past twenty years in public performances by the Zipang storytellers.
The Zipang Recording Project will enable these stories to be listened to in English and in Arabic online, providing a free and easily accessible introduction to the literature of ancient Iraq.
A Sumerian story – The Marriage of Martu – has been recorded and put online. It can be listened to here. Other stories will be made available to listen to as they are recorded in the months ahead.
The ZIPANG team
The Enheduanna Society is a registered
