9 videos of the songs of the Camorra, italian mafia

| | , , ,

Like the stereotypical vision of Coppola’s film about the Mafia, the soundtrack of Camorra is based on the romantic notes of neomelodic, a musical style originating from Naples, whose representatives are sometimes tied to criminal circles.

This music is based on melodic rhythms and the main topics are the family, love and betrayal. Some performers in the Neomelodic scene have been criticised for glorifying crime in their songs. Criminal organizations control and largely finance the neomelodics, a profitable recording and production industry with more than 200 millions of euros per year.

The Camorra is a Mafia-type of criminal organization originated in Campania, southern Italy.

‘O capo clan di Nello Liberti – Clan Chief

Lyrics excerpt

The boss is a serious man, It’s not true that he’s evil
but with the heart you can’t think
The boss can’t fail because for the Family he is the one who commands
He can’t stay far from his children and the liberty
And every night he dreams of the people who wait for him

The video shows the gangster giving the hitman his instructions. No mercy for traitors.
