Corsican vocal ensemble A Filetta are unafraid to blend the traditional and the innovative. Their compelling repertoire includes a wide array of music, old and new, and for this special Festival performance they introduce music lovers to the compelling sounds of their recent album, Castelli.
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 exploring themes of memory, nostalgia and the meaning of life.
