led by Valeria Pilia,dedicates this musical project to the preciousness of singing culture of Sardinian women.

The song of the women, appreciated for its beauty and harmonious interpretation and especially for the valuable social role in the community, covering accompanies all stages of life, from birth to death.
The Sardinian women sang not by need but by deep discovery: lull the sleep of children, celebrate religious rites, protect from illnesses, accompany the dead in their latest trip, but also to give rhythm to their work, drive out fear of loneliness, entertain children, summon and fans love unburden their daily work with playful verses.
Polyphonic arrangements by Valeria Pilia, are performed a cappella by the five voices and sounds are sometimes embellished with various traditional instruments or simple objects of domestic work.
