Sunday in Kyoto is an Artistic Musical Storybook

Geek Culture

Sunday in Kyoto, the latest release from publisher The Secret Mountain, is a storybook and accompanying CD featuring songs written by Gilles Vigneault.

We pointed out a previous Secret Mountain offering called My Name is Chicken Joe back in April of this year and Sunday in Kyoto is a worthy follow up release. It follows the same format: hardcover storybook with the title song fully illustrated and the lyrics to other songs on the CD included as well, so kids can sing along. The artwork, by French-Canadian artist (and Cirque du Soleil set designer) Stéphane Jorisch is vivid and a cadre of singers including Patrick Watson provide the vocals for Vigneault’s lyrics. Think of this as fun kid’s music (they manage to slip in the odd reference to farts) with a more artistic bent than typical fare. Available as a hardcover with CD, or a digipack CD, in both cases the discs include printable PDFs of the lyrics, song notes and illustrations. For a taste of Sunday in Kyoto, check out the title video, below.
