Neri a metà. Napoli Centrale... oltre Napoli

Margherita Orsino


The name of the band Napoli Centrale is a metaphor: it evokes the station - the point of departure and arrival of migrants, a black market place, a place for exchange, a meeting place, a place where the half-black James Senese invented the Neapolitan jazz-fusion in the 1970s, where the nero a metà Pino Daniele was at the beginning of his career. In this article, we will trace how this experimental sound is a rebellion against racism, precarity, poverty, exploitation, the condition of total neglect in the southern areas of Italy and also the global South. From the analysis of the lyrics and paratexts we will try to identify the main elements of an original jazz fusion sound in the Neapolitan language.
