Traditional Songs & Dances of Sardinia



Sardinia has a rich variety of traditional music and this album includes some of the marvellous natural harmony singing by children, plus folk songs and country dances, as well as a rare chance to hear the launedda — a double pipe instrument unique to Sardinia. It was beautifully recorded by Fr Damian Webb in 1962 when the villages he visited had very little contact with the wider world. Tracks include pastoral sounds, male quartet, children of Nuoro and Lotzorai, Nuoro folk dance group with accordion, Dorgali folk song group, Folk dance music on launedda and jew's harp.
