Calandra and Calandra

 

In every culture, marriage is a moment of happiness and joy. In Sicily it is also a moment where families can demonstrate to other their "greatness", and so the two brothers Calandra and Calandra show this curious aspect with a song and a funny music video that emphasizes the various characters and what happens during the church ceremony and the feast in the restaurant. But the song was inspired by a legend of a woman in love of a poor guy. Her family didn't want this inconvenient marriage so they forced the girl to get married to another man. After some years, she became widow and decides to marry her true love! So he said in the chorus, "Senza tuppu un t'appi... cu lu tuppu t'appi Senza Tuppu un t'appi cu lu Tuppu t'appi comu t'appi t'appi". That means he had her heart both when she had loose and collected hair. In fact a girl with loose hair simbolize that she is free and old enough to find an husband, while with collected hair means that she is not free anymore. (Laura Leonardi)
