The Corsican ensemble, Barbara Furtuna, is a polyphonic group of four men mostly performing a capella, or occasionally with other instruments or ensembles. Even though the group still finds its inspiration in the island's oldest traditions, it is now also distinguished by its own creations, and offers a music that speaks to contemporary longings.
The group has been performing on the international scene for the last ten years, in Europe, but also North America and Australia. Prestigious appearances have continued to increase performing alone or in unexpected collaborations including: with the famed tenor, Placido Domingo; the baroque ensemble L'Arpeggiata; and with the Persian music ensemble, Constantinople. The quartet has shown that it transcends a single register and that traditional music still has the ability to surprise and to move us.
