I’m excited to be starting a new series of Friday posts as part of a writers’ community I’m in, WANA (We Are Not Alone). We’ll all be posting on a common topic on Fridays, and sharing links to all the participants’ posts so you can go blog-hopping and read the different takes on the same topic.
This week’s WANA Friday topic is a favourite or inspiring work of art — a painting, a piece of music, and so on.
Here’s one of mine:
This is a group called Barbara Furtuna, who sing in a traditional Corsican polyphonic style. (Corsica is a Mediterranean island belonging to France, although they have a distinct culture and language. It’s also the birthplace of Napoleon.) To me, the music sounds something like medieval Gregorian chanting, but with undertones of Africa. I love the minor-key sound and the lush harmonies…they touch something deep in my soul. Of course, it’s even better live! Americans, they’re coming your way in the fall…

That’s it for the weekend. See you back here on Monday!
