A FILETTA (vocal group, Corsica)
Program – folk songs, jazz, film music
The group A FILETTA was created in 1978 from a deep passion for the singing and land of Corsica. Since then, the group has soared to the peak of vocal harmony. Unlimited talent, a piercing vocal sensitivity and an overwhelming emotional fervor are the trademarks of A FILETTA magic. No one leaves their concerts unmoved. No wonder that the film music composer Bruno Coulais has called on them many times for fruitful collaborations (10 soundtracks). Beginning with Jacques Webers 'Don Juan', the group has interpreted the scores for his 'Himalaya', which won a Golden Cd award and a César award in 2000 for the best film score, and the BO of Akhénatons film 'Comme un aimant' and 'Le Peuple Migrateur' by Jacques Perrin. In 2003 they released a brilliant songs album 'Si Di Mè' (Virgin). In 2006 last a cappella album 'Medea' (Naïve) inspired by the Seneque antique tragedy. 2008 new release, a cappella.
