Next time I'm running a role-playing game and I need some super creepy background music, I know what to use. 

That's a good thing, in case it wasn't obvious. :-)
On hearing this I feel the urge to practice some Tuvan throat singing.

Here we go then...  Gar... Gar... Geee... Gaaa... Gar.

Ah - that's better!

For the record, it's called la Corse in French, and Corsica in Corsican. I would be careful about correcting anyone who used either, since linguistic questions are politically sensitive on the island.

Yep, I'll second that {#Clap}. That's the beauty of RP to me, that every time I listen to it there's always something new, and quite often from new and (to western ears) obscure regions.
Well, Youssou N'Dour way is fame. But obviously Peter Gabriel is missed.
Wow, this great!
 Well, that grabbed my attention - in a good way...

are you talking about the geese or the singer?
Sounds to me like a male, slightly bluesy take on Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares.

I really like it. 
Brutal
Really enjoyed this piece.  Kind of surprised by the relatively low rating by RP listeners. 
Thank you Bill! Amazing!
Was lucky enough to catch them on roadtrip to Corsica. A mesmerising experience.
powerful!

Only ever heard this in Corsica - top marks RP for picking it up.  Wonderful sound.
Interesting... alluring
Gorgeous. Like a call to worship.

{#Lol} MP and the Holy Grail. This song is just sooooooo RP, and jolted me to attention and got me putting my phones on to get the full surround-sound.

MORE.....{#Notworthy}...THANK YOU BILL ...KFAT RULES as history..when Ele May left it was over.....


{#Stop}
.... nice time for a little shut eye......
I dunno. Sounds more like it belongs in "The Exorcist".
Enjoy the eclectic, great track.

...i don't think that was singing per se - was it accompanied by a strong odor?..

That's what it sounds like to me, too.  Also a bit Bulgarian.
 
Yeah, that mixed w/ weird Maori influences.  Good stuff!

  Agreed! {#Beat}


Great to cut the anglo-saxon stream... great BillG, thx!

no apologies, Marcu ... most Americans don't know that La Corse is what people from that lovely island call it themselves. Corsica is what Americans think it's called.

Lovely music.

Corsica is a mediterranean island near Sardinia, Italy and France. (this is the patri of Pascal Paoli who give his name to severals american towns)
Corsica is the most beautiful place on the earth {#Angel} (a lot of american come here to visit us)

I had thought it was either Bulgarian or Russian.  I'm surprised Corsican would sound like that...it doesn't sound like either French or Italian folk music, which is what you would expect.

In any event, quite a lovely piece.

Please!  What is LUGHOLE?   Anything to do with cars?   LUGNUTS?  
Great movie!  This sounded a bit like Tuvan throat singing at first.  Interesting!

This is a slang word for ears.  Not sure where it originates. Perhaps we need a translation service on RP!  Two nations divided by a common language indeed!

 
...this is nice...

Is this more Arabic or Egyptian in flavor? I once had a great rock album called "Hard Rock From the Middle East" . . . gotta find it again.

This cut has a bit too much tremolo/warbling. That probably explains why I'm not converting to Islam. . . .
 

Hi
the compositor is a french man : Bruno Coulais
the song, sound like a corse song
(the corse is an island of france, with a very famous style of a cappella song )

I listen to RP for the variety and constant surprises. If you want same old same old you're in the wrong place. This is a nice refreshing number which woke my lugholes up - 7 from the Nottingham jury.

E.g. mine :-) Music like this makes me listen to RP. There are a lot of other stations that just play pop and rock stuff...

I was expecting it to go somewhere......

That movie absolutely blew my mind. This music is not that good IMO
Amazingly incredible movie, great Soundtrack Thanks RP! Oscar
A meditative song from a great movie, perhaps it might work better with birds in the background. Be sure however to check out the rest of the "Winged Migration" Soundtrack it does not dissapoint. Nick Cave's beautiful, "To be by your side" is only one of the gems.
