Love of Sicilian and Southern Italian roots music is what drives ROSA TATUATA to passionately interpret the traditions and melodies of their ancestors. Just as their name comes from Tennessee William’s beloved play about the happy, raucous collision of immigrant and American cultures; likewise ROSA TATUATA’s performance relates that indelible commingling to their beloved audience through song!
Fueled by their research into traditional instruments like the tamburo ( Sicilian frame drum), organetto , marranzano ( jaw’s harp) and zampogna ( Southern Italian bag-pipes) ROSA TATUATA introduces traditional songs into different musical contexts that rhythmically mirror the comingling of Old & New World. With an enchanting mix of ballads and dance tunes, ROSA TATUATA will take your imagination to sunbathed Southern Italy and the clear, crystal-blue waters surrounding Sicliy. See Michela Musolino, Phil Passantino, Charlie Rutan and Jeffrey Pannettieri as ROSA TATUATA.
