    Safeguarding and promotion of the practice of Cantu a tenore singing, respecting its local expressions


In the Sardinian language, Modas means the plurality of local expressions that characterize Sardinian cantu a tenore singing. The main objective of our project is, indeed, to safeguard and promote this expressive wealth that connects singing and singers to their own communities, of which they are a living expression.

For this reason, Modas articulates a comprehensive initiative aimed at safeguarding, studying, and promoting this musical practice: from the census of singing linked to academic activities, audiovisual documentation, and ethnographic research, to the creation of a cantu a tenore singing network, to the recovery and development of the contexts of traditional roles and the involvement of the younger generations through public events in the communities to which they belong and, also, didactic activities in schools. All these cultural actions directly involve the singers, thus favoring interaction between the various communities.
