CURRENT MUSICAL COLLABORATIONS

 

 

NEAPOLITAN MUSIC

“NAPOLI A MODO MIO”  (Naples My Way)

Classic Neapolitan music.  Famous (and not so famous) ballads, up-tempo and comedic songs of Naples. Beautiful readings from “Napoli sul mare luccica” a book by Antonella Cilento, are intertwined throughout the evening.
A special moment in the show is a tribute to one of the last composers of Neapolitan Song, Fausto Cigliano with his song, Duorme, written in the ‘60s with Ennio Morricone.

“Merav Pal e Parochna”.  Female singer: Cristina Barzi

“I am dying because of my hair
all of it will be shaved
Do not cut my hair!
I am driven out into a concentration camp.
Oh God, what will I do
where will I lay my head?
I will lay it on a pillow,
my children are around me.”

 

“Traurige čerheni  ando učo nebo”. Female singer: Cristina Barzi

A sad star at high sky

I have no staying in my apartment.

They took me out of my own bed.

I had to leave my wife and the children.

A sad star in the high sky,

They took me out of my house

And then they took me to the camp

There I was burned to ashes
