"In Corsica, the voice reigns supreme -- from the polyphonic intensity of paghjella and the poetic invention of chjama erispondi, to lullabies, laments and funeral orations. However, the island also has a rich and varied instrumental repertoire. It includes music for the pifana pastorale flute, pirula flute, the powerful cialamedda, the cetera and more recently adopted instruments like the violin, guitar, mandolin and accordion." Oversized hardbound packaging with a 113-page booklet in English and French.
