About Rosa Tatuata: 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 Williams’ beloved play about the happy, raucous collision of immigrant and American cultures; likewise ROSA TATUATA’s performance relates that incredible 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 bagpipes), ROSA TATUATA introduces traditional songs into different musical contexts that rhythmically mirror the commingling 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 Sicily. See Michela Musolino, Phil Passantino, Charlie Rutan and Jeffrey Panettieri as ROSA TATUATA.
