Moving to I Muvrini, 23rd August 2011

No one must contemplate a trip to Corsica without partaking of the Corsican singing experience. We had seen some performers already – indeed one of Terry’s fellow musicians here sings in the traditional voice of the island. But last night topped it all! I Muvrini were fantastic! A real show!

 Yes, they were embracing nationalism, which doesn’t float my boat, to use a good sea-faring metaphor, but most of all they were promoting a genuine compassion, a humanity, a focus away from materialism towards creativity, poetry, respect and peace, with intense musicality. Now you wouldn’t expect me to like that, would you?!
