Kejda“Kajda. Musiche e riti femminili tra i rom del Kosovo”. This is the title of the book by Nico Staiti, released by the publisher squilibri. Staiti, ethnomusicologist and professor at the University of Bologna, offers us the results of a complex ethnography, conducted on topics that intersect music, gender, social organization, ritual and, in general, cultural production. From the introduction can be deduced some joints that Staiti faced in his field of investigation: “This book deals with the music played inside the female rites, in Kosovo, musicians specialized Rom, women or effeminate. Thaey singand play the frame drum, mostly in pairs. Their repertoires are complex, requiring technical skills and musical expertise: the players are not many effeminate. And I’m also quite shy: out from places and times when work to promote not like to talk about himself, nor of their role, their own music. Also because of this attitude their role can appear marginal and ancillary in this musical tradition and ritual. Not manifested with special evidence, and is not indispensable, since the same function can be paid by women musicians. However, there are differences between the way in which the women musicians exhibit themselves in the course of parties, and the way in which effeminate do. They, it seems, accompany the musical performance a certain way mannered, theatrical exhibit their feminine behavior that is not feminine but peculiarly them, which therefore does not belong to professional women, and that becomes part of the staging ritual”.
