GUEST,Cattia Salto Lyr Req/Add: Re Gilardin (8) RE: Lyr Req/Add: Re Gilardin 10 Sep 16

The Alexandrian group Ciapa Rusa (founders Maurizio Martinotti and Beppe Greppi) picked up on the field-among the many ethnographic research at the elderly singers and the musicians of the musical tradition of the four provinces, the popular song Re Gilardin. (More precisely in Alta Val Borbera -area belonging from the point of view of the musical tradition of the Four Provinces, a soil and mountainous area straddling four provinces of Al, Ge, Pv and Pc.)
The ballad of the early Middle Ages, had already been collected and published in different versions by Costantino Nigra in his "Folk songs of Piedmont"

The Ciapa Rusa in 1982 makes it a first arrangement.
In this first version is set up a sort of dramatic representation of the model companies of strolling players of the past with the narration (Alberto Cesa) King (Maurizio Martinotti), the mother, the widow, was an altar boy at the church. We can imagine all the more tragic than comic skit - turn in horror at Bernie ripping one last kiss to his widow !!
In 1997 the group under the name Tendachent (remain Maurizio Martinotti - gurdy and song, Bruno Raiteri -violino and violations and Devis Longo - singing, keyboards and wind instruments) again maintains ballad in the first album of the new formation "Ori pari" in 2000, with a more progressive sound (now the group is called progressive folk-rock north-Italian)
