"Piano Traveler" is a multicultural education series of animated music shorts. "Kunugi Tree" is the first song in the series. Using graphic storytelling and simple animation, this video illustrates an original song about a mythological oak tree in Japan. This narrative is interpreted and developed as a metaphor for the spiritual journey that unfolds. Philosophical concepts and activities expressed include animism, kami, zen and meditation. Japanese vocabulary and ethnic instruments are also included to enhance learning.
