“Wandering singings in the old town“
The tradition of singing “a cuncordu
”, polyphony of four male voices with almost exclusively religious repertoire, is represented in various Sardinian villages, especially during the rites of Holy Week.
Among the most famous traditions are those of Castelsardo
The “Cuncordu di Castelsardo
” is one of the choirs that keeps this tradition handed down through the centuries alive.
The director and curator of Cuncordu is Giovanni Pinna
, a long career full of concerts around the world and dedicated to the conservation of this precious intangible heritage of Sardinia.
The group, as is natural, has had several changes over the years and today makes use of the voices of young people who guarantee generational continuity.
The wandering concert will start at dawn from the churchyard of the Sant’Antonio Cathedral
and will cover some of the most evocative places in the historic village of Doria
, among sacred and profane songs.
