This interactive Corsican singing workshop will introduce you to the different voices of Corsican polyphony (seconda, bassu and terza) and will be led by the six members of the Corsican group A Filetta.

This six-hour workshop is for everyone: curious, passionate and inamored by the art of singing. As this repertoire is taught orally, it is not necessary to read music or know music theory for this workshop.

Students will work all together and in sub-groups which will allow you to deepen or discover certain techniques specific to this rich vocal tradition. No matter your level, everyone finds their place in a Corsican polyphony choir ...

No prerequisites.
