POLYPHONIE

The secular breath of a virgin forest,

 the silences that inhabit it, the songs that reveal it

POLYPHONIE is a concept-concert dedicated to forest and nature. With its mix of African and ancient European instruments, the 14-pieces ensemble from Italy performs stories that express the power of rite and chorality. The use of voices and the counterrpoint bears fitness to both the value of European musical tradition and to rich African rhytmic heritage.

Lead singer: NJAMY SITSON 

 

Live acts include Ravenna Festival and Teatro Verdi, Sassari
