A FilettaStringpurée Band

The seven-strong a Filetta sing the praises of their home country of Corsica. With a career going back thirty years, this a cappella group weaves together global rhythms and spirituality.

The evening gets off to a solidly Finnish start with ancient beats and urban sounds from the Stringpurée Band.

"Imagine a cross between Gregorian chants, Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares and Bobby McFerrin's multitracked vocal improvisations, and you might approximate the haunting sound of the seven-piece Corsican male vocal group A Filetta."
