Editorial Reviews

The polyphonic singing of Sardinia is one of those art forms that hits you like a lightning bolt the first time you hear it. You sit and ask, "What is that sound? How do they do it?" It is ancient (maybe dating back as far as 1,000 years), with a dependence on dark, not-quite minor-key harmonies and rich overtones. Key to the sound are the rough-hewn su basso and sa contra singers, whose guttural quality defines everything else about the music. That is countered by a crystal-clear third voice and a classic tenor lead vocalist. The blend is unique in the world of singing. It's an acquired taste for those who are used to simple harmonies and tight choral arrangements, but given a chance, the sound can be quite addictive. Although less known and hyped up than the Tenores di Bitti, Tenores de Oniferi are every bit their equal. --Louis Gibson

By R. G. Villalobos on September 11, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Polyphonic Singing from Sardinia served as an introduction for me to this traditional style of singing that I had never known. These men use overtones and harmonies to create shifting walls of sound. It's a truly unique sound that leaves quite an impression. It's streams and bends in unison. This music creates a space and holds it. The sustained pitches bend around a slow spiraling void. The music is exciting and quickens the pulse. It's alive with mystery and wonder.

Buy the album and talk about it for years with anyone who will listen. You will be a convert and an agent for the propagation of this fine music!

I lived in Sardinia for a while and became a fan of this type of music. This CD is an extremely good example of the art of Sardinian music.
