    ... in Griko (Grecìa Salentina - Magna Graecia)

    notice some of the old maps; Calabria was called Italia and Salento was Calabria :)

    ... some scholars say the Griko is Medieval, but others say it was passed down by Magna Grecia.

    If the scholars cannot agree, maybe it's a combination of the two,

    ... some say that the Medieval Greeks went to live in the Griko towns where a form of Ancient Greek was still spoken.

    Famous Italian anti-war folk song: Gorizia tu sei maladetta with English subtitles




    Anna Magnani singing a famous Neapolitan World War I song in a soldiers' hospital ward. Massimo Ranieri is playing the guitar.
    The Soldier in Love-written by a soldier at the front in World War I

    You are far away from this heart
    I fly to you in my mind
    I hope and want nothing more
    than always keeping you by my side!
    Are you sure about this love
    As I am sure that I love you


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    How many nights have I not seen you
    not felt you in my arms,
    not kissed your face,
    not held you tight in my arms?!
    But, waking from these dreams,
    you make me cry for you...


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Write forever and be happy:
    I can only think of you...
    One thought comforts me,
    you only think of me...
    The most beautiful woman in the world,
    is never more beautiful than you!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Magnani turns it into an anti-war song just with her performance. She was a genius.



    The Massimo Ranieri version in his native Napoli-the way it was normally sung. He's wonderful too.


    Non si fa il proprio dovere perchè qualcuno ci dica grazie, lo si fa per principio, per se stessi, per la propria dignità. Oriana Fallaci

    every culture has its drinking song / stornelli (personalized story telling song)
    ... usually sung at the end of an event:

    ... I would like to thank this Masseria (Farm / Estate), now I will sing you the Cuccurucù ... :)



    cuccurucú = ... birds chirping, I think.

    The young dancer with the beard is one of the best pizzica dancers I've ever seen; absolutely precise, nimble, and an incredible sense of rhythm along with amazing grace. I always really enjoy videos of him performing. Makes me quite take my eyes off the female dancers. :)

    I'm almost certain this is also him.

    How beautiful they are...

    Speaking of beautiful, not exactly "Italian" folk, but sung by Milva, an Italian singer, in Italian, and danced by two gorgeous dancers. Wish I knew their names so I could follow them.

    We were 19, or there were 19 of us: the 19 boys killed by a suicide bombing attack in Iraq. Sort of a "new" folk song, I'd say. Sung by Alpini in a mountain town near Piacenza, Emilia:



    I had blue skies
    In my gaze and in my heart
    With the dreams of one's twenties
    And your sincere love
    That day I left
    In a soldier's uniform
    With the flame and the tricolor
    But I never came back

    We were nineteen
    All of them in Nassiriya
    To defend peace
    And bring democracy
    But one day the sun exploded
    For fanatical madness
    And my light went out
    And my soul flew away
    And my light went out
    And my soul flew away

    Here in front of my bride
    Wrapped inside a flag
    My soul rests
    To make a clear sunrise
    The President bowed
    While they play the silence
    And the applause of the people
    It goes up in the sky to me

    We were nineteen
    All of them in Nassiriya
    To defend peace
    And bring democracy
    But one day the sun exploded
    For fanatical madness
    And my light went out
    And my soul flew away
    And my light went out
    And my soul flew away

    In the sand under the sun
    A beautiful flower will be born
    With blood and pain
    For a word, "freedom"
    With blood and pain
    For a word, "freedom"

    Come little one; how beautiful is love, from the Ligurian mountains. What a different sensibility compared to the, imo, brutality and violence against women celebrated in so many songs, or just the total lack of human emotion, and the treating of other people as objects for sexual gratification.



    It's still played at local sagre and dances. Round and round the floor, always counter-clockwise. :) It makes my heart hurt.



    It was a different world, one where you courted by dancing the whole night through, and honey-sweet words were poured into your ears, not obscenities.

    I was born into the wrong world, but I thank God at least I wasn't born twenty-five or thirty years ago, because it's just gotten worse, and worse.

    Tuscany: La Quadriglia, known in some areas as the "Quadrille", and in the U.S. as "Square Dancing". All of them date to a European dance from the 18th century.

    I wish my people loved the pifero less; it's almost as bad as the bagpipes! :)

    La Mazurka del Musetta...

    La zona dell'appennino detta delle "Quattro Province", dove nel raggio di pochi chilometri si intersecano anche quattro regioni (Emilia, Lombardia, Liguria e Piemonte) ha conservato un patrimonio comune di canti, balli musiche e strumenti musicali (piffero, musa, oltre alla fisarmonica) mutuato nel corso dei secoli e scandito dalle occasioni di ricorrenze, delle sagre e delle feste comandate.
