Some of the world's most unusual sounds are produced by Sardinia-based group Tenores de Oniferi. Rooted in Sardinia's polyphonic singing tradition, the group was described by Rod Stradling of Musical Traditions as "younger, faster and harder....both more suited to a 'world music' audience and closer to the tradition." Based in Oniferi, a town in the central Barbagia section of the island, Tenores de Oniferei represents the vision of lead vocalist Francesca Pirisi and his twin brother, Giovanni, who sings counter tenor.
