    Corsican polyphonies

    A father from Venaco, a mother from Santa Maria Figaniella, Jean-Paul Poletti brings together the north and south of Corsica.
    After musical studies in Bastia then in Florence and Siena, he will play a capital role in the "Riacquistu", the reconquest of the culture of Corsica. This is the birth of the emblematic group "Canta u Populu Corsu" of which he is one of the main composers and singers, along with Petru Guelfucci and Minicale. An adventure that will last from 1974 to 1981, the time of the creation of nine albums and multiple concerts. In 1986, Jean-Paul Poletti was at the Olympia, then Bourges the following year. In 1987, he created a singing school in Sartène which would become the Polyphonic Art Center. He worked at the Fenice in Venice and then received a Victoire de la Musique in 1990 with the Nouvelles Polyphonies Corses which opened the Winter Olympics in Albertville in 1992.
    In 1995, he created the Chœur d’Hommes de Sartène with which he toured extensively in France and abroad. He performs at the Cité de la Musique, at the Opéra de la Fenice in Venice, in the Cathedral of Autun, at the Printemps de Bourges, etc.
    Jean-Paul Poletti is also a composer. He wrote the "Messa Sulenna", the oratorio "Corsica Cristiana 2000", the music for the film "Monsieur N." by Antoine de Caunes and more recently the oratorio "Terra Mea".

    The concert program presents the sacred polyphonies and in particular the magnificent compositions of the Franciscan Fathers of the Saint-Côme Convent and Damien de Sartène. Traditional secular songs from Corsica are also on the program for this concert, as are excerpts from the oratorio "Terra Mea" and Jean-Paul Poletti's Stabat Mater. Through his research, his compositions and his concert activity, Jean-Paul Poletti devotes his life to polyphonic art, the jewel of the spiritual and secular oral tradition.
