Calling the Taliesin is a Spoken Word lyrical poem from Sheri-D Wilson’s Latin Music/Spoken Word CD Dragon Rouge.

Recorded in Calgary & Portland, well produced & accessible, Dragon Rouge combines arresting Spoken Word Poetry of Sheri-D Wilson with scintillating Latin music that traverses the outside edge. Producers: Steve Berlin (Los Lobos & Tragically Hip) & Sheri-D Wilson. Arrangements: Steve Berlin.

The Calling the Taliesin lyrical video poem combines the recorded music with medieval and Scottish images to welcome the symbolic death and rebirth of the Sun. Happy Solstice!

And there, I excavate
A portal grave, a dolmen tomb,
And I unearth my name
From her quarry womb
Ollamh, Ollamh!

Let me wear the six colours
Of rain—
I’m calling the Taliesin in!
I’m calling the Taliesin in!
I’m calling the Taliesin in!
