Corsican vocal ensemble A Filetta is a sacred musical journey... Their compelling repertoire includes a wide array of music, old and new.
The Mediterranean island of Corsica is renowned for its stunning vocal music and the six members of A Filetta have long been an important part of this musical tradition. This extraordinarily creative group originally formed to preserve the music of their region, but have since forged an international reputation with their sublime original compositions influenced by the island’s oral traditions.
This promises to be an evening of soaring vocals, heavenly harmonies and complex, three-part polyphonic songs. A Filetta's philosophy is encapsulated in this aphorism by French poet, René Char: "The purest harvests are sowed in a ground that does not exist; they get rid of gratitude and only owe to spring".
"A FILETTA's voices speak to the skin as much as to the ear... A Filetta sing the soul of their island with a universal talent.” L’EXPRESS
