Biography:

Tino” Rossi (who had lyrical subtleties in common with the great tenors) was a product of the time-honored Corsican-tradition of the itinerant troubadour.

Constantin Rossi was born in Ajaccio, into a large Roman-Catholic family which for generations prior, lived-on the west coast of the island of Corsica, on 29 April 1907, at 43 de la rue Fesch. His parents, Eugénie and Laurent, had a total of eight children; so, Constantin – known as “Tintin” – spent most of his childhood growing up with three brothers and four sisters. Constantin’s father worked as a tailor and fervently hoped that young “Tino” would go on to run the family business one day. But from an early age, “Tino” had other things on his mind: Young “Tino”, as passionate music fan, and edged-on by his mother, was inspired by what he heard at the local opera house. Rossi developed his remarkably attractive voice by singing in his local Parish Church, l’eglise Saint-Roch d’Ajaccio.

In his late teens Tino went off to live on the French Riviera, chanting while accompanying himself on the guitar in the cafes and bistros of Ajaccio, Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles, where he enjoyed great success performing at amateur singing contests. Meanwhile, he earned a living working for a mortgage company in Nice.

While yet a teenager, in Marseilles, Constantine Rossi eloped with a Bohemian violinist, Annie (a few years his senior) and had a daughter, Pierette. His loving father, Laurent Rossi, came to his rescue, clearing him of the marriage, and sending him to St. Michael’s military academy on the Continent in Provance. After graduation, Tino moved back to Corsica where his parents got him a job working as a money changer in Ajaccio Casino.

“Tino” was still gripped by the music bug, however, and before long he was making his way back across the Mediterranean to try his luck in Marseilles; and, in the company of a male companion (just like in his early movies) but with his dear father always nearby, Tino spent several months meandering along the coast between Marseilles and Aix-en-Provence, he finally landed a job in Aix Casino, working as a money changer. It was at this stage of his life, around 1929, that “Tino” got his first major break. A local tour manager by the name of P’tit Louis happened to see “Tino” performing in concert [“au caf’conc” à Aix-en provence] one night. And, greatly impressed by the singer’s vocal talent, his natural stage charisma and his winning ways with female fans, promptly signed him up to do a series of galas in the region.

Tino’s fame rapidly spread beyond the Southern French-Mediterranean coast. Gaining fame, but not wealth, his father encouraged him to make an amateur recording at a local public street-side shop. God blessed him abundantly: Tino went into Parlophone’s Paris studio in 1932, He made his first audio-recordings in 1932 for the Parlophone Label in Paris and released a debut 78rpm, featuring “O Ciuciarella” and “Ninni Nanna”, a few months later. The record failed to make any great commercial impact; but in Paris he received unprecedented acclaim after an engagement at the Theatre des Varities in 1933. Then, he soon scored a spot at the Alcazar in Marseilles (a venue renowned as a vital launchpad for new talents in the South of France). After bringing the house down á l’Alcazar de Marseille, Tino went on to perform a series of concerts with Berthe Sylva….History reveals the rest: In 1933 Columbia offered Tino a major recording contract. Rossi made the first of hundreds of phonograph recordings for the Columbia Label in 1934. The he made a few appearances on the silver screen. But it was in the music hall that Tino found real stardom.

Tino played a major role in the Casino de Paris’s new revue “Tout Paris chante”. In fact, by this stage of his career, offers to perform in leading reviews and musicals were literally flooding in. There was no doubt about it, by the mid-30s Tino Rossi had become a headlining star and it came as no surprise to anyone when he sold a staggering 500,000 copies of his hit “Adieu Hawaï”. As radio sets invaded French homes throughout the 30s, bringing singers into direct contact with national audiences, Tino’s record sales increased hand in hand with his fame.

Tino performed at the legendary ABC in 1934 and when Henri Varna, director of the Casino de Paris, created his famous revue “La Parade de France” (a show based on regional music), Tino was the obvious choice to represent Corsica. Choosing to perform a series of songs written by the Provençal author Vincent Scotto, Tino brought the house down when he performed at the première on 14 October 1934, receiving a rousing standing ovation from the audience. Tino’s return to his Corsican roots proved highly popular with French audiences and his success in “La Parade de France” was swiftly followed by tours with Gilles et Julien and the famous 30s diva Damia.

In 1936, Tino went on to star in Pierre Caron’s “Marinella”, a musical film which was written specifically for him. Needless to say, the theme song from the film proved a great hit and in 1937 Tino scored another huge hit with “Naples au baiser de feu”, the theme song from Augusto Genina’s film of the same name, in which he starred opposite Viviane Romance and Mireille Balin. With co-star Mireille Balin, in 1938, amidst a blaze of media publicity, Tino and Mirelle climbed aboard the French liner Normandie and set sail for the United States. Tino’s concert tour of the States and Canada proved a huge success; and, his single “Vieni Vieni” soon went rocketing to the top of the American charts – where it stayed for no less than 28 weeks!

Briefly in 1940, Tino Rossi joined the Corsican Resistance; but was basicly unscathed by the Second World War. Returning to Cinema, in 1941, Tino starred in Jean Delannoy’s film “Fièvres”.

From “Wikipedia”, one can learn of a war-secret not readily publicized while he was alive:”…At the Liberation, the French authorities reproached him for associating with the French Gestapo, but most importantly for actively supporting collaborationist causes such as the LVF (Légion des Volontaires Français) who sent French volunteers to work in German factories. He was arrested in October 1944 and spent three weeks in Fresnesprison (near Paris). Following a trial in 1945, his sentence was relatively light. Unlike his fellow entertainers Arletty, Mireille Balin, Josseline Gaël and Robert Le Vigan), Rossi received a retrospective and largely symbolic work suspension….”

Echoing in real life his role in the film, “Fievres”, Tino remained religiously celebate until he married actress Lilia Vetti in 1947 (well after she played a naked swamp-vamp in “Le Gardien” in May 1946, even though he “fell instanly in-love with her” in 1943) which produced a son, (Laurent*/ “Pupe” in May 1948); and which romatically lasted until Tino’s untimely and painful death.

Between Tino’s hectic filming and touring schedule, Rossi somehow managed to find time to flit in and out of the recording studio. As a family man, “Tino” returned to his native Corsica to make their home, “Le Scudo” on the island of Sanguinaira just-off the coast of Ajaccio; still flying frequently to the Continent to make many, many live appearances and innumerable pathé-EMI recordings…many times with his young son. The property of “Le Scudo”, originally had an older house on it, which Tino demolished and built a modern bungalow with a pool and a cave. It was his luck to have met up with a circus-proprietor during 1950, through which he acquired the property. To have a beautiful home, a lovely wife, an affectionate dog, and a son is all he desired now in life.

In fact, over the years he built up an extensive repertoire, recording everything from romantic ballads, opera arias, classic songs, tangos and serenades to South American and Corsican classics. He made his last screen appearance in 1970 in “l’Ane de Zigliara”. The singer remained a popular face on television, though, regularly appearing on French variety shows. But in 1976 he delighted fans by performing a special series of concerts in the Jean-Richard Big Top in the Tuileries Gardens in Paris. He was invited to the grotto of Lourdes, which he visited many times; making there special recordings at the Sacred grove in honor of St. Bernadette.

At the age of 75 Tino soldiered back on stage at the Casino de Paris, celebrating 50 years in the music business with a series of farewell concerts. Tino’s farewell concerts lasted a full three months – and each night the Casino de Paris was packed to full capacity! Tino actually went on to sign a new 5-year recording contract with Pathé Marconi….His career spanned fifty years, included countless appearances on radio and television, and no less than 28+ cinematic-films. Indeed it was as a screen-idol that Tino Rossi achieved his most popular successes. In 1982, for his contribution to France and its culture, President François Mitterrand named Tino Rossi a Commander of the Legion of Honor. He was awarded the Corsican French Legion of Honor as well. A street, plaza, and a large-port in Ajaccio was named after Tino Rossi.

At Nogent-sur-Marne, on the River Marne in Paris, there is a square named Tino Rossi Square. Also, there is a square in L’Isle Rousse dedicated to him.

Tino Rossi also piloted his own personal yacht, “Le Tilipou”, (being spotted commonly on the streets of Ajaccio); and when time permitted him to travel to the French-coast in a more relaxed way.

People consider that Tino Rossi’s voice came into “full bloom” in the late 1960’s. He always had a most admirable and pleasant voice; and the tonal qualities changed very obviously in four distinct periods:

1) as a young man (1932-1945) [high and sweet],

2) as a fully developed artist (1945-1960) [a well defined, “lovely” “pop” tenor],

3) as a resounding, striking and extremely beautiful instrument fully matured at its peak [particularly in the late 1960’s, i.e. “Il fait Croire”, “Merci Cherie”],

4) a deeper, less steady voice of aging. Almost a baritone [particularly 1977- to his departure].

The great singing and incredible artistry of the late Tino Rossi: is not understood by most people, all they hear was a pretty voice! He was far more; Tino Rossi had an uncanny sense of phrasing, rhythm, and a depth of character. His pitch was perfect and he did not resort to “sobbing” and “belting” (as many tenors have a tendency for doing.).

He exhibited a grace very rarely seen upon stage. And listening to Tino Rossi, always made you smile.

His acting was insightful (remember “Deux Amours”) and believable (“Le Fièvre”). His personal morality remains beyond question.

“Tino” Rossi died at a hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine, Nice, on the night of 26/27 September 1983 while being treated for pancreatic-cancer. His funeral procession, to the consecrated family plot at the “Anciennne Cemetaire” off-of the Sanguiaires Isle of Ajaccio, was one of the largest in history. Indeed, he is often considered to be the second most widely recognized Corsican in history, only following Napoléone Bonaparté.

Biography

Edit

Born in Monticello, “Michel Mallory” only bloomed when he returned to his native roots (1986+), sang his Corsican-soul out, in a full voiced baritone (which he did not use in the hippie-’60s) and came to his epiphany (kneeling before God).

Herein Michel Mallory sings of not only of an Isle of Beauty, but, also of Corsica as a Christian nation, blessed in brotherhood as long as the nation honors Mary and Her Son, (he is especially devoted to the Virgin Mary).

His style has changed over the years, and since 1986 he has only sung songs composed by himself in Corsican. Many of his songs are autobiographical.

Though his present home is in Normandy with his second beloved wife, Nathalie and 5 children, his heart is still in Balagne. When he goes “home”, he teaches “Corsu” (the particular Corsican language) at Corte University and other schools in Corsica, through the medium of song.

Ghjivan Paolu POLETTI:

Jean-Paul Poletti

Born:
1949, he’s 63 
Birthname:
Ghjivan Paolu Poletti.

Biography

Jean-Paul Poletti’s father was organist at Venaco, Corsica of the North. His mother was an organist from Santa Maria Figanilla in Corse-Sud.

He was born in Ajaccio in 1949, and was raised happily within the Vénacais and Alta Regions of Corsica, overseeing the valley of the Rizzanese (opening into the Gulf of Propriano).

Jean-Paul Poletti began to compose at the age of ten, accompanying himself on the guitar. He studied in Bastia with Vincent Orsini.

Then Poletti studied opera in Sienna; and at the Schola Cantorum in Florence, under Maestro Michel Livrelli, he attended choral-conducting classes.

Upon his return to Corsica, Poletti decided to to resuscitate the “paghjello”, which was on the eve of totally disappearing! He desired to restore an essential function to singing: “awakening memory and provoking the first jolts of a sleeping people”!

He made 9 albums from 1974-1981 w/ “Cantu u populu Corsu”, which he founded with Petru Guelfucci and Minicule.

He was also at the same time, a teacher of music at the Collège San Paulo (in Ajaccio); and, by 1986 at the National Music School in Bastia.

First Opera: 1988, entitled “Theodore, Ré di Petra” (based factually on Theordore de Neuhoff). This occurred when he was appointed head of the singing school at Sartène (which eventually became the “Center of Polyphonic Art” circa 2000). By 1989 he thus completed a concert tour with Sergio Bartolo (performing G.A. Perti’s opera, “Gesu al Sepolcro”), and finally gave a complete performance of his own opera. This won him the “Grand Prix de l’Academie du Disque”.

He received the “Victoire de la Musique” award in 1992, with the group “Les Novelles Polyphonies Corse” [which performed the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games].

In 1993, he premiered at the Cannes Festival, “Canta Corsica”; and it opened the Théatre du Châtelet 1994 season in Paris. It is still popularly performed today.

He is commonly heard over “ALTA CANZONA FREQUENZA” Corsican Radio.

He is a Member of the “Royal College of Music” in London (since 1994) and is frequently seen on tours and with other Corsican groups including “I MUVRINI”!

In 1999, Poletti working with the late violinist, Yehudi Menuhin, entrusted him to teach a program for Corsica, entitled “Mus-e”.

“Messa Sulenna” was given its first performance at the Lyon Opera, conducted by John Alidis in 2002. Immediately, Poletti was awarded the “Grand Vermeil Medal” by the city of Paris. He then embarked upon writing film scores in Hollywood.

Ghjivan Paolu Poletti certainly seems to have fulfilled his dream of embranding Corsican Polyphony into a living classical-legacy.

Snapshot:

Biography

Antoine Ciosi was born at Sorbo Ocagnano (Haute-Corse) in December of 1931. Attracted by the lights of Paris, at twenty, Antoine Ciosi left southern Bastia, without knowing anything of his native isle of Corsica! With a light heart, he sailed to the French capital where he took voice lessons and intended to sing in operettas. He began at Mogador, alongside Tino Rossi in 1957, and sang occasionally at the Chatelet …

But soon, Antoine Ciosi became home-sick for Corsica. He returned home with the desire to reclaim the culture of the island …. “My luck was to be born into a peasant family which has always preserved Corsu” remembers he. He decided to tour the island with a tape recorder and collected everything: old poems from the libraries, the songs of old, traditional tunes, etc.. “Sometimes the reactions were a little cold … I remember an elderly matron who, after giving me several poems, very seriously asked me: ‘Mr. Ciosi, what do you do with these old things?”‘ . Tirelessly, I wanted to keep these songs from falling into oblivion; and this was the only way to save a song. Forty years later, the challenge remains the same.

In April 1963, he won first prize at “l’Olympia” ‘s First Festival Awards, for the chanson, “Paese spentu” of Jean Giucanti and Vincent Orsini, and for a new version of “U trenu di Bastia” by Tintin Pasqualini . He remains active, promoting Corsican culture, and has partnered many times with Antoine Leonardi for the Corsican cause.

Antoine Leonardi said “Ciosi who has been singing in concert for thirty years with star billing [and] is one of the best crooners of Corsican songs. He’s always been a strong defender of the patrimonial heritage lending his great sensitivity and his warm voice rich in emotion to his author-composer friends who often write about very delicate themes.”

Biography

Alanu and Ghijvan Francescu Bernardini grew up in the small village of Tagliu-Isulaccia in the far north of Corsica. Their father was a poet-singer. The “paisanu” of the village remember the brothers perched on makeshift stages singing the traditional polyphonies of their region. At this period, they recorded a few 45rpms with “Cantu U Populu Corsu”. They entered that group under their father’s request to Ghijvan Paulu Poletti (who began the group). In 1977, their father died, who always dreamed of a free Corsica. The boys saw themselves as singers with a divine purpose of disseminating information concerning their people’s cause of a liberated native citizenry, capable of governing themselves, as well as preserving the immense beauty of the island.

Indeed the band has now sung world wide, encompassing precise “bellisima” as well as their message concerning the Isle of Beauty.

In their travels, they have incorporated other elements into the Corsican tradition, using artists like Loîc Taillebrest and Giles Chabenat (from Normandy, Brittany), César Anot from the Caribbean, Sarah Brightman, Tina Arena, Sting, and Algerian singer Anggun. Thus, they have given themselves a distinctive sound, but without removing their roots in Corsica.

The Inner Soul of our brother-leader, Moammar al-Gadhafi:

al-Qathafi is a mystical genius. He was selected to be born in this time and age to reveal to man a means of living together healthfully in a society of PEACE
and unity with nationalistic pride. He is a builder and also a man full of love: of his fellow man, and of life. Yet, as he says, he fears not death. Why should he?
He has done nothing to be ashamed of before man or God. He is The Lord’s instrument; and he will not turn away from what he has been asked to do.From Moammar al-Gadhafi you will never hear a note of revenge, a note to kill or retaliate. Does this seem strange to you?
Have faith in your God.� Have faith in The Revolution.� Have faith in The Jamahiriya. This is what he asks.�And now�have faith in what the leader of The Revolution,�
Moammar al-�Gadhafi, said at Bab El Aziziya.� Have faith and hold strong!So, people, try to have some faith in Moammar al-Gadhafi !WHEN DO YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO SUPPORT A MUJJADID IMAM WHO HAS BEEN RAISED AMIDST YOU;
WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO SUPPORT SUCH A GREAT REFORMER?YIKES!�

Even if you don’t want to put this in the religious realm by declaring him a Mujjadid, you can STILL give him your TOTAL support, so that the world can be helped towards another course.�
The world will get there anyway, with or without Gadhafi.� He’s just ONE catalyst, that’s all.�

Well, enough said.� Even a CHRISTIAN could see that Gaddafi is a Mujjadid!� Of course, people NEVER recognize the leader when he appears in their midst.�
It’s always LONG after he’s gone that they recognize who he was.� Well, that’s the sad fact, I guess.

…………………
A measure of the level of al-Qathafi’s belief in religion can be seen in two incidents.� During this war, the news media was trying to dig up every kind of possible dirt they could.� They found nothing.� In one article, they interviewed one of his Bulgarian nurses.� They pressed and pressed and pressed, virtually directly asking her if he “fooled around.”
The woman actually laughed and said, “Gaddafi?!� Ha!� He’s a prude?”� When asked, “But why does he have beautiful women as his nurses,” she answered, “for the same reason that he likes flowers and other beautiful things.”�

One of the most frustrating things it the absolutely complete media blackout.� We are in an information prison.� It is SO astonishing.� Every report sounds as
if it’s written by the same individual.� And you can’t get any perspective.� You’re told one side of this, and that’s it.�

This is truly new.� It just blows me away.� It’s why I, along with others, have contributed tons of work at mathaba.net.� It’s fulfilling because the work is being
done by Christians, Muslims, ATHEISTS, revolutionaries, etc., etc., and just people who deplore injustice.� Do check out the articles at mathaba.net, and please
inform people about the work there. (Register at http://www.mathaba.org and login to the Mathaba Committees forum if you wish to help out).

Those of you who feel this, in your heart, please continue to pray that the suffering of the Libyan people under racist, imperialist aggression will soon come to an end.� Thank you.

Peace,
RC
