"Arcani and the Tree of Dreams"
is an original musical story inspired by a folktale from Bolivia.  It is about a boy who dreams about setting his own path in life instead of the road he is destined to travel.  The boy, Arcani,  falls asleep under a toborochi tree one day.   When he wakes he sees a strangely dressed man standing nearby.  At first, Arcani thinks the man is merely a dream - but he is not.  The man calls himself 'El Vagabundo del Mundo' and explains that he is a traveling healer.  The Vagabundo shares some of his healing lotions, tree bark, and knowledge with Arcani who uses them to help his mother's cough and sore hands caused by the exhausting work she does.  However  when Arcani uses his new knowledge to help the mayor's wife, the mayor doesn't not approve.  He believes Arcani is incapable of knowing anything so important.  Arcani and his mother are exiled from their village.  But a poorly timed case of hiccups prompts the mayor's wife to bring them back to the village to help.

The characters of "Arcani and the Tree of Dreams"  are voiced by Adrian Cerrato, Carolynne Wilcox, Harry Turpin, Cassandra León, and Josh Rodriguez.  Book and Lyrics by P. Haines-Ainsworth.  Music by Terence Alaric Levitt.   Sound Engineer: Steven Bell.  Recorded at Top of the Hill Studios in Duvall, WA.
