A solo piece – Ish Nje Dit

A song that I learn many years ago. I love the inventant language as well as the hybrid languages like this one.

This is an arbresche song, the language is a mix of the dialect of the South of Italy and Albanian born as the result of the Albanian diaspora in the XV century. A very particular melody that gave me inspiration for this performance that ends with the melody itself.

There are some little mistakes in the melody but I decided to leave it anyway cause I want it to be real and follow the logic of the orality, where songs are transforming with the the oral transmission.
