Jean-Claude sent this song with the note: "The most famous Corsican lullaby is 'O ciucciarella', known throughout the island."


*It's a female mouflon (a subspecies of wild sheep).
**North Wind: Here it's specifically Tramuntana (lit. "beyond/the other side of the mountain"), a classical name for the North Wind of the Mediterranean.
