The famous French singer presents her new album “Encore Heureux”. For the occasion, Zazie is touring all of France called “L’heureux Tour”. Do not miss it during its passage to Erbalunga.

Friday August 12: Les Innocents and Barbara Furtuna (first part)

Barbara Furtuna is a Corsican group, created in Nebbiu. They spread the Corsican language all over the planet. They mostly sing a cappella in the purest Corsican tradition. This is a group not to be missed to discover local traditional music.Les Innocents is a group that was very well known in the 90s. After a separation in the 2000s, two founding members reassembled the group for our greatest pleasure. We find everything that made the success of the Innocents in their last album released in 2015, Mandarine.
