The pizzica tarantata, also known as pizzica pizzica has been used for many centuries as healing music in the ritual against the alleged bite of the tarantula spider. Today it is performed as a convivial dance. Jou Passu is one of the many songs of this repertoire.
Salentine dialect:
Jou passu te sta sthrata e restu tisu, lu core nu mme tira cchiui cu trasu.
(ritornello) Na na na na na na na, beddhru l'amore e ci lu sape fa.
M'aggiu 'mparatu ca 'nc'è nn'auru amicu ca te la casa è lu cchiù cunfitatu.
(ritornello)
Tene nna cantita te olivetu e nnu stuppieddhru te sciojiu simminatu.
(ritornello)
E l'usu te la casa nu tte lu ticu: nna seggia rutta cu llu palu stuccatu!
(ritornello)
