Mafia Music
The real Italian Mafia was born at the beginning of 1900, in Sicily, but criminal organizations were already present in Naples (camorra) and Calabria ('ndrangheta).
In those areas, it is not that people were more wicked than others, unfortunately when in 1861 Italy became a single nation, many residents of those places, not sottostarono the new Italian laws, and rebelled by becoming Briganti (bandits ).
In Italy in those years took a kind of civil war, with thousands of deaths, on the one hand and on the other, but the Italian army (consisting largely of Piedmont, inhabitants of Northern Italy, who did not understand the language of the inhabitants south) was much more organized and was easily the best of these poor peasant rebels.
Over the years, these rebels developed a network of friends, complicity, and large landowners, they turned it into their own little army.
Now these 'mafia' were not bandits, the Mafia was born, which means Criminal Organization, tied to the powers of the Policy.
That's definition that the law gives to Italian mafia.

The Mafia is not just a criminal organization:

are called 'Mafia' only those organizations that have complicity in State apparatus, which may be those of politics, local government, or of the same justice.

  • Pi fundari li reguli sociali
  • Leggi d'onore, di sangue, di guerra
  • Leggi maggiori, minori e criminali

  • E sti regoli di sangue e d'omertà

  • Na barchicedda viti navigari
  • Cu cinchu veli e sette marinari
  • Uno di chisti mi vosi dumandari

  • 'Giuvanoto, dicete che cercati'

  • 'Onore e sango, eu c'arrispondia'

  • Leggi d'onori, leggi d'omertà

Lyrics translated in English - Nrangheta camorra e mafia:

  • One night a long time ago
  • Three riders, they departed from Spain
  • From the Abruzzi to Sicily passed
  • And then here in Calabria stopped

  • for 21 years underground worked ,
  • to establish these social laws
  • Laws of honor, blood, war

  • One morning, in the middle of the sea
  • I saw a small boat sailing
  • 5 sails and seven sailors
  • One of them asked me

  • 'Young man, you say what you seek'

  • 'Honour and blood, I said'

  • Above this boat went
  • Honor and blood found for the road
  • And they took me to the sea
  • In this island of Favignana name
  • O all you people have been listening to
  • this land is near and very far

  • Ndrangheta mafia Camurri and
  • Laws of honor, laws of silence
  • Ndrangheta mafia Camurri and
  • And for those who make mistakes, no mercy

  • here there was a castle with 3 rooms
  • where the first smelled infamy
  • Three drops of blood in the second, we were
  • While in the third, a body of socità

  • Worthy and deserving was recognized
  • Under all'arbero science battezzat
  • Onorato circle to greet you all
  • Fina's death I am bound to you

  • And I'm the man for the blood and honor
  • And to ward off the infamous and traitors
