Oral Chants of the Mediterranean

A cantador of Catalan Pyrenees, cant redoblat of Ibiza, a brotherhood of Corsica, a muezzin in Cairo, a versador de cant d’estil of València, and a watermelon seller of Alexandria, express the values of culture with the voice. These chants of oral tradition tell us the Mediterranean lifestyles. The collective consciousness is built over time and updated by the daily rituals. Knowing the non-writenn logic of these chants approaches us to meet the realities of this area.
