France, Corsica - 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 è rispondi, to lullabies, laments and funeral orations - the island also has a rich and varied instrumental repertoire... expressive pifana pastoral flute (in goat horn) and pirula flute (reed), the powerful cialamedda (reminiscent of the bagpipes), the cetera (sistra) with its crystalline tones, and more recently adopted instruments like the violin, the guitar, the mandolin and the accordion.
