Anthology of Profane Songs and Music

Though in Corsica the voice reigns supreme - from the polyphonic intensity of paghjella and the poetic invention of "chjama รจ rispondi", to lullabies, laments and funeral orations - the island also has a richand varied instrumental repertoire... expressive "pifana" pastorale flute (in goat horn) and "pirula" flute (reed), the powerful "cialamedda" (reminiscent of the bagpipes), the "cetera" (sistra) with its cristallines tones, and more recently adopted instruments like the violin, the guitar, the mandolin and the accordion.
