Biography

I Muvrini is a Corsican folk music group who sing traditional Corsican music in their native Corsican language.

I Muvrini was formed in the early 1980s by the brothers Jean-Francois Bernardini and Alain Bernardini who were born in the village of Tagliu-Isulacciu in the north of Corsica. They are named after a type of wild sheep which live in the mountains of Corsica.

The Bernardini brothers were introduced to traditional Corsican music at an early age by their father, Ghjuliu, who was a well known poet and singer. They recorded their first single with their father in collaboration with the group Canta u Populu Corsu. Ghjuliu Bernardini died in December 1977 and I Muvrini’s first album, I Muvrini … ti ringrazianu, which was released in 1979, was dedicated to their father’s memory.

In 2000, I Muvrini joined up with Sting to record the their most famous song, “Terre d’Oru” (English: Fields of Gold).

Throughout their career they have promoted the Corsican language and culture.
