Every year since 1989, the Polyphonic Song Festival has featured choristers and soloists from Corsica and the rest of the world. In late summer, concerts of polyphonic songs are organised in various locations in the citadel of Calvi, including the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the Oratory. This musical and cultural event is very popular in Corsica.
As a truly international festival, the Polyphonic Song Festival welcomes a wide range of acts, be they Corsican, Bulgarian, Georgian, Amerindian, Inuit, Tibetan, African, Indonesian, New Caledonian, Réunionese, Syrian or Moroccan. Through the voices and languages of these people, new horizons are revealed, without artifice or ostentation.
