Lo Còr de la Plana
FRANCE - U.S. PREMIERE TOUR
With deep Mediterranean roots, African influences and touches of Gregorian chant, Lo Cóór de la Plana (pronounced Loo cooar day la plan) stirs the soul. From the quarter of La Plaine in Marseilles, of this all-male vocal ensemble are accompanied by rhythmic percussions, "œpicaments" of their feet and "œbataments" of their hands. Singing in the medieval Occitan language of southern France, the groups intricate a cappella harmonies transcend translation with lively songs that soar between the dissonant and the sacred.
