A Filetta

by Miriam Rossius

It all started with the willingness to protect an expressive heritage: Polyphonic male singing on Corsica island was almost forgotten when this a capella ensemble was founded in 1978. Some of them were still teenagers at that time.

 

Dedicated and successfully they brought back to life the Corsican vocal heritage, which is strongly based on oral tradition. They also boldly renewed it, opened its horizons and set out for artistic adventures with other polyphonic traditions. And they discovered the diversity of genres: theater, cinema, dance and produced numerous impressive repertoires.

 

But above all these six men share an extraordinary vocal harmony. Through 40 common years they have found the perfect balance as a choir.
