Caltanissetta fa quattru quarteri

Rosa Balistreri

Cantu di surfarari (minatori dello zolfo in Sicilia) – Testo e musica tradizionali.

Rosa Balistreri was an Italian singer and musician born March 21, 1927 in Licata, Sicily, and died September 20, 1990 in Palermo. Her hoarse voice charged with melancholy and strong personality made her a Sicilian icon of the twentieth century like the writer Leonardo Sciascia, the poet Ignazio Buttitta and the painter Renato Guttuso who counted all three of her admirers.

TESTO

 

Caltanissetta fa quattru quarteri
La megghiu giuvintù, li surfarari

La duminica su’ tutti cu’ dinari
A lu luni ‘nta la pirrera hannu a calari
A lu luni ‘nta la pirrera hannu a calari

C’un tintu pani e ‘na trista lumera
Tutta la simanedda hannu a passari
Tutta la simanedda hannu a passari
