The Coroincanto Voci Femminili Senzaconfini Choir was born within the “Centro Studi Atelier Centodue” Association and offers educational concerts and courses in Kindergartens, Primary, Middle and High Schools.
On February 21, 2018, at the invitation of Prof M. Cipri Castorina of the La Sapienza University of Rome and with the patronage of the Senate of the Republic, Prof.M Paula Gallardo as President of the Achille Serrao Study Center and Conductor of the Coroincanto, both bodies of the Centro Studi Atelier Centodue, participated as a Speaker during the Conference “The mother tongue as a construction of knowledge” for the World Mother Language Day and at the end of the event she will present herself in a Concert with the Coroincanto at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Rome. In 2019 this event generated a project called “The songs of the Mother Tongue”, structured starting from the experience of the Coroincanto Voci Femminili Senzaconfini in the collection, enhancement and conservation of the universal intangible heritage such as the songs of the oral tradition of the different cultures present in the territory, meeting immigrants not musicians but also some scholars of their ethnic music to receive from them the songs of their land, childhood, roots, in the mother tongue. The project then develops into public and educational concerts (I. C. S. Biagio Platani VI Municipio) to raise awareness and give support to the most disadvantaged social categories (families, women and migrant children) encouraged by sharing and enhancing their cultural background. In the first six months of 2019 we also brought this project to the I.C. of Via dei Sesami in Rome and in the Morvillo Elementary School of Via Siculiana in Rome.
After a year of work in the field for the meeting, interviews and collection from the voice of non-musician immigrants and foreign musicians experts in ethnic music of their culture, the Coroincanto intends to prepare a collection of songs representative of the ethnic groups present in the territory that can serve as teaching material in kindergartens, elementary and middle schools with high index classes of foreign students. This collection will be compiled in AUDIO format (a CD recorded by Coroincanto together with the students of the schools participating in the project). The finished product will be distributed free of charge in other new schools, to teachers who want to implement similar experiences or who want to use the songs as a means of meeting and dialogue between the cultures present in their classes. In this way, Coroincanto aims to provide an instrument of rapprochement and mutual knowledge between local culture and migrant cultures.
