The Lenfest Center for the Arts
Lo Còr de la Plana
Saturday, November 4, 2017
Sponsored in part by the Pauline B and Paul D. Pickens Fund for the Performing Arts.
Pickens World Music Lo Còr de la Plana (pronounced “Loh cor deh la plahna”) is a gritty romp, matching five male a cappella voices with the stomping, clapping beat of a variety of hand drums, that accompany this French ensemble. Sung in the little-known ancient language of “Occitan,” the group transcends translation with wit, tenacity, and above all, intricate harmonies that soar between dissonant and sacred. Ripe with passion and Mediterranean roots, flavors of Arabic, African and parts of Gregorian chant, the group takes you on a European journey that stirs the soul.
