A Filetta is an all-male singing group that performs traditional music from Corsica. This group was created in 1978 by Michele Frassati. He enlisted Corsican singers so that the traditional Corsican singing style (polyphony) would not be forgotten by everyone. To assert its Corsican identity, the group's name refers to a kind of fern that grows on the island of Corsica.

For over 35 years, A Filetta has been singing traditional polyphony but also knows how to innovate. The group does not hesitate to create, open itself to the world, to other cultures, to everybody. They have recorded extensively and performed around the world. In 2009, they performed in France, Germany, Poland, Ireland, Brazil, in the Baltic States, Belgium, Italy, and Austria.

The group is currently composed of 6 singers:
