On "À la fiera di San Francè" - (2016)
"À la fiera di San Francè" - At Saint Francis' Fair - is an up tempo Corsican children's song. It is a version of a counting song, as in the verse additional things are inserted, telling what was bought as Saint Francis' fair. "À la fiera di San Francè / M'aghju cumpratu una sumera, / Ih ! anh ! una sumera !" The list includes a she-donkey, a violin, a pistol and a mule in some versions.
