bulletTarantella del Baglio (instrumental)
( 2002 Gruppo Folk "La Basulata")
Lead mandolin: GIUSEPPE BIONDILLO
Recording and digital mastering: E. Maiello
 
bullet

This is one of the many original songs written from the Group musicians and it is one of its most recent recordings: basically it is a happy "tarantella" dance, a classic dance typical in Campania Region, but written and played with the heart and the thoughts beloving the ancient Medieval Borgo of our town, Baia e Latina...

bullet'Mbriachete tu! ("Get drunk!") (instrumental)
( 2002 Gruppo Folk "La Basulata")
Lead mandolin: GIUSEPPE BIONDILLO
Recording and digital mastering: E. Maiello
 
bullet

Another typical our town joyful instrumental song, that's been curiously transmitted by the old musicians, simply...orally for over 70 years!! It is a thoughless "tarantella" surely inspired by the unpredictable (..but, obviously, "healthy"..) effects on the human feelings due to the rich and flavoured great local wine!!

bulletLa Molisana ("The Molisan girl")
( 1996 Gruppo Folk "Vecchia Baja" gi "La Basulata")
Recording and digital mastering: E. Maiello - E. Rotondaro
 
bullet

Here is a song that says really a lot about the "crossing" influences that Baia e Latina has got time after time, as it is sited in the middle of 3 various Regions borders (Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise). This is a happy song where a lover tells his girlfriend that everithing's goin' to be ready for their forthcoming wedding...
This is an old recording too, made up with just lucky means: it came out a simple and spontaneous singing made up during a simple party evening beetween friends..

An instrumental song that doesn't need to be introduced at all. It's a twisting tarantella, quite different from the original version, featuring the typycal  LA BASULATA Folk Group special kick...

bullet

"Levet'a llocu c'aggia pass" is surely one of the most exciting songs of the whole repertory of LA BASULATA Folk Group.

Clip taken' from a video filmed in the FIUGGI TERME (FR) Municipal Theatre, where the Folk Group "LA BASULATA" had a show during the Folk Festival "I colori dell'Italia" ("The colours of Italy"), at the end of the Annual Assembly of the F.A.F.IT. Association (Federation of the Italian Folk Association). This is a song very happy and fascinating, that's usually singed in our areas, but first of all it gives the chance to see a wonderful and impressive view of the full Group lined on the chorus line, while slowly revealing in all its majestic elegance way by way the stage curtain gets opened...

Video footage: ENZO CUNTI
 
bullet

This clip has been "accidentally" shoot by Mr. Enzo Cunti in the Group rehearsale room. We said "accidentally" because in fact the videocamera has been left unintentionally turned on during the Group dance rehearsales that, everybody knows, for us are absolutely TOP SECRET...! This also means that this is a rare and maybe unique chance to get a close look "behind the scenes" of the hard work made up by the Group to bring on stage a nice show. Anyway, only by chance, this video also testify the FIRST dance test ever made for the song "Tarantella del Baglio"... ENJOY!!

This is a video-clip in which it is possible to appreciate some of the very elegant dance steps typical of this wonderful tarantella titled "'MBRIACHETE TU". The great refrain of the song finds out its perfect end in the nice final choreography. This is a song and a dance that, since ever, represents an excellent opening of all our live shows...

This is an old brief "clip", filmed while just SOME of the actual members of the Folk Group "LA BASULATA" participated as characters to the biannual representation of the local PRESEPE VIVENTE (Living Holy Nativity), that's considered one of the best made and absolutely wonderful folkloristic-religious shows of Italy. In this kind of representation, the "live" performance of the Folk Group (..just few members..), that plays without wearing their typical scene costume, represents since ever an unforgettable and emotioning "date" for all the esteemers of the genre, even if, due to the circumstances, aren't played songs taken' from the repertory of the Group, but just some Christmas typical songs such like the one presented in this video-clip.

Video footage: ANTONIO ZAPPOLI
 
bullet

This is a short video-clip in which it's easy to appreciate the first dancing steps of this typical "tarantella" song titled "Z Nic". The song has been re-arranged and ameliorated from the original one, by the Group musicians, to better work as a perfect soundtrack for this original choreography, where a group of lovely young girls, happily kids around in twisting by their beauty a confused and excited man (so called "Z Nic") that doesn't know which one to choose to be his girlfriend...

That's our most evident hommage dedicated to our Region (Campania) and to its world famous city: Naples. We made of this wonderful song (originally singed by the Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare) a specific musical arrangement in the typical "LA BASULATA" style. At every show, during this song, we also have a special guest coming up on the stage: it's our Regional mask, PULCINELLA...

L'uva focarina... (live)
( 2003 C.I.A.C. Baia e Latina - Gruppo Folk "LA BASULATA")
Video footage: ANTONIO ZAPPOLI
 
bullet

...well, what to say 'bout this video? Simply that this song is not really part of our "classic" repertoire, but to tell the truth, everitime it's possible, we really enjoy so much to improvise what to sing. This is probably due to the huge amount of songs we "unofficially" know and that sometimes we're used to sing during our traditional serenades that we still actually play around in our hometown...!!). Well, in this case, the comitee of this Feast, before our official show on stage, asked us to "warm up" a bit the crowd while walking in the town streets: they also gave us a total freedom and we simply did what they asked us!! Which was the results? Well, take a look at this and judge by yourselves...

This is one of the longest videoclips here presented, but it is a valuable 2,75 Mb file made up of pure joy, featuring an irresistible song, wonderfully sung by our gorgeous Gianni PERROTTA. This song talks about the handsome "Rusella", a beautiful girl from the Matese Mountains, perfectly able to let all the men that meets her to fall in love...!
