he music of A FILETTA is a journey… One could say that it is a demanding and daring contemporary polyphonic vocal proposal, born of a powerful oral tradition.
It was in 1978 that a group of very young people, driven by a fierce desire to contribute to the safeguarding of an oral heritage in full decline, set out on their journey… and their road has been long, sometimes winding, but punctuated by discoveries and exceptional encounters. The singers readily admit that “encounters” are part of their musical DNA.
Their repertoire includes sacred and secular songs with diverse influences, film music by Bruno Coulais, compositions for choreographies by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, excerpts from the chorus of an ancient tragedy and pieces from a requiem commissioned by the Saint-Denis festival.
Music that serves a vision of the world that unambiguously rejects any kind of identity-based withdrawal and whose philosophy could be summed up in this beautiful aphorism by René Char: “The purest harvests are sown in a soil that does not exist; they eliminate gratitude and owe only to the spring”.
