A Filetta is a singing group that performs traditional music from Corsica. It's made up of Corsican singers who try to popularize the traditional Corsican Polyphony singing style. To assert its Corsican identity, the group's name refers to a kind of fern that grows on the island.
Formed in 1978, the group is made up of Jean-Claude Acquaviva, François Aragni, Paul Giansily, Stéphane Serra, Jean Sicurani, and Maxime Vuillamier. They have recorded extensively and performed internationally cross the globe.
Their debut album, 'Machja n'avemu un'antra', was released in 1981, and was followed by a further 15 albums, the latest being 2015's 'Castelli'.
A Filetta will head to Cardiff in 2018 for a special performance as part of the city's Festival of Voice. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
