a filetta arrive at this year’s Winter Festival with their director, Jean-Claude Acquaviva who was just 13 years old when he founded this exceptional group! The group are known throughout Europe for their stunning performances of Corsican polyphony including folk songs and hymns. They’ve even dabbled in film soundtracks (including several collaborations with film composer Bruno Coulais and the soundtrack for Himalaya), theatrical & operatic collaborations, from a theatrical show based on Seneca’s Medea to operatic Marco Polo with Guillaume Depardieu, and original compositions.
They’ll be performing a flavoursome mix of plainsong, Corsican chant and original compositions at Christ Church Spitalfields on 14 December, for what promises to be an experience not to miss.
