Basque version

Voceri

Korsikeraz inprobisatutako negar-kantuak. Emakumeek hildakoei inprobisatutako kantuak ziren, mina eta tristezia adierazi ahal izateko modu bat. Desagertu den ohitura da, baina Korsikako kantugintzan eragina izan duen artea da.
"Voceri" are improvised dirges sung in Corsican. They were sung by women about the deceased, used as a means of expressing sorrow and pain. The custom is no longer practiced, but it has had a major influence on Corsican music.
