The Zipang Recording Project (ZRP) was launched by the
Enheduanna Society in October 2017.
The purpose of the project is to record and make publicly available the Zipang repertoire of re-told Mesopotamian stories. These re-told stories are
based closely on academic translations and were developed over twenty years of public
performances by the Zipang storytellers.

The ZRP will enable these stories to be listened to in English and in Arabic, providing a free and easily accessible introduction to the literature of ancient Iraq.
Below is a list of the ZRP stories
currently available, either as audio files or videos. Simply click on
the title of any story to view further information about
it and how to access it. It is free to
watch, listen to and download ZRP
The stories were recorded by Robert Worby, Arij al-Soltan, Jennifer Iles, and Colin Rae. The
ZRP was produced by Fran Hazelton and by James Ware of Purple Patch Records.
