We are happy to present at the Circolo Arci Il Progresso in Florence, Rabbia Rosa, a recording project born from an idea by the Florentine singer-songwriter Fabio Balzano in collaboration with the Istituto Ernesto de Martino, who gathered around him a group of excellent instrumentalists composed from Riccardo Brizzi (drums and percussion), Michele Mingrone (electric guitar) and Gabriele Savarese (violin, flamenco guitar) to pay homage to the repertoire of Rosa Balistreri, Sicilian storyteller and custodian of the island's musical tradition. "Quannu iu moru / sing me them 'sing / nun the darkened / sung the antri (when I will die / sing my songs / do not forget them / sing them for others)", so sang Rosa Balistreri in her last song and that 'invitation has become a deep inspiration in rethinking, rewriting and rearranging his songbook, following the red thread of his passionality in denouncing the contradictions of his land, the living conditions of women, peasants and prisoners, the exploitation of workers, the mafia and corruption. Recorded at the Boomker Studio in Florence by Federico Cioni and Matteo Marliani, the album collects seven songs, the result of a rigorous research work on the historical recordings made by the Sicilian singer for the Tauro Record and Cetra Folk, which together draw an ideal trip in the memory of the rediscovery of a cultural heritage of inestimable value. From the musical point of view the album is characterized by elegant arrangements from the modern sound côté that starting from the use of contemporary instruments, cross and cross sounds different from the Balkans to the sounds of the Mediterranean, from rock to roots music, all without ever losing the link with the popular matrix. The sonic choices refer directly to the places, facts and actions told in the texts of the songs, giving the show the nuances that unite ancient and modern, present and past.
In addition to the songs of the CD, other songs by Rosa will be presented, re-thought with the same spirit. In addition, other surprises, the projection during the live of the works of Sabrina Casiroli inspired by the woman, series from which it is the cover of the CD and a tribute to the Tuscan singer-songwriter, Rosa's friend, Dodi Moscati.
