Music of the world

The vocal ensemble Cuncordu e Tenore d’Orosei has prime of place in the vast panorama of traditional Sardinian music. This is due to both their intense musical performance and their characteristic repertoire encompassing the two vocal traditions to be found in Orosei: the sacred songs of religious brotherhoods and the secular “canto a tenore”. These singers are the faithful guardians of a musical heritage passed on by their elders. Two specific vocal forms constitute their repertoire: ancestral pastoral songs called “a tenore” and songs celebrating the Passion of Christ, called “a concordu” and also known as “gotzos”. Noteworthy: one track features the jazzman Paolo Fresu on trumpet.
