Following previous recent singles Hold And Stay (recently premiered on FRUK) and In Your Hands, Fabrizio Cammarata’s 2016 EP is completed with a haunting exploration of a timeless classic La Llorona, also our Song of the Day. La Llorona (“The Weeping Woman”) is a legendary ghost prominent in the folklore of Mexican Culture. The myth sometimes takes aspects of an urban legend and is present all throughout the Hispanic culture, even reaching Spain. According to the tradition, La Llorona is the ghost of a woman who lost her children and cries while looking for them in the river, often causing misfortune to those who are near or hear her.
“La Llorona resembles a mother, a lover, but she also looks like Death personified, as well as like the Virgin Mary… I don’t really believe in reincarnation, but I feel the trace of past lives when I sing it. In my concerts, that is a moment where I am not myself anymore. It’s a ritual. When it’s this song’s turn, I’m like: alright everybody, I’m leaving you here with this demon, see you again in 6-7 minutes”.
