Biography

Tenores di Bitti are Sardinia's celebrated masters of traditional "tenores" singing, a tradition that dates back over a thousand years. The Tenores do not use written music - this precious cultural/musical tradition is handed down orally from father to son. Their singing is characterised by the sounds of the natural landscape and the singers stand one in front of the other, ... Read more in Amazon's Tenores Di Bitti Store

Traditional Sardinian Sheepherding Music 1 Mar. 2003
By Barbara J. Chaplin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Tenores di Bitti are a group of four male singers from the Italian island of Sardinia. This music is very old: probably its origins are as far back as the pre-Christian era; supposedly, it comes from the songs of sheep and goat herders. From this, don't expect light-hearted, lilting melodies played on a flute. Rather, it sounds something like a combination of Gregorian chant and Tuvan throat-singing. Although strange, its sound is definitely less weird than that of Huun-Huur-Tu, the most famous exponent of Tuvan music. Sardinian music is also quite similar to that of Corsica.
I'm a big fan of this kind of music, and I liked it at first listen, but I'm pretty sure not everybody would: definitely listen to the samples before buying.
They sing in a dialect of Italian. The lyrics are not included in the packaging, unfortunately. An explanation, rather than a translation, of the lyrics in English is provided.
To sum up, it's an interesting cd which I highly recommend, and believe me, traditional Sardinian sheepherding music doesn't get any better than this!
