Il Cerchio Celtico (english version)

Think of an ideal circle connecting Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany, and then down to the Bay of Biscay, Asturias, and Galicia. Now think of the stretch of the Atlantic Ocean across which the ancient Celts once sailed. After finding your way in this journey across ‘other lands’, you’ll discover a people with the same ethnic origins, linguistic and cultural background, religious beliefs, and a unique musical tradition. Coro Altreterre invites you to a journey in search of the extraordinary Celtic repertoire. You’ll discover its analogies and peculiarities through a wide range of musical genres: from Scottish jigs to Irish reels, from the dark tones of Breton ballads to the frenzy of Gaelic vocals, from sea shanties to the rarefied atmosphere of contemporary Celtic vocalizing. With the support of MUSyCANTI and the interplay of lights and words, during this show Coro Altreterre will further deepen its interest in popular music from all over the world. Are you ready to plunge into a deep blue-green sea?
