Barbara Furtuna (“Crual Destiny”) is a polyphonic Corsican choir of four men. Even though the group still finds its inspiration in the island’s oldest traditions, it is now distinguished by its own creations and offers a music that answers our contemporary longings. The group has been present on the international scene for the last ten years, in Europe, but also North America and Australia. It performs in solo and with unexpected collaborators like the baroque ensemble L’Arpeggiata and the Early and Persian music ensemble Constantinople. The quartet shows that it can transcend a single register and that traditional music has still the ability to surprise and to move us.
Members of Barbara Furtuna:
André Dominici, bassu
Jean-Philippe Guissani, bassu, contracantu
Jean-Pierre Marchetti, terza
Maxime Merlandi, seconda, guitar
