France, Corsica, Calvi, Jazz Festival

01/01/70

Outside of France, the island of Cosica is perhaps best known musically for its polyphonic choral tradition. The rebirth of this genre was linked with the rise of Corsian nationalism in the 1970s. Evey June, Cali is home to an internatonal Jazz Festival and in September there are the annual Rencontres de Chants Polyphoniques. (July 1999)
