Fascinated by the legendary figure of Sacagawea, Alessandra Celletti devoted to her history some compositions now published by al-kemi lab in one of its alchemical boxes entitled “Sketches for Sacagawea”, a sort of notebook of notes containing a CD with 5 tracks and a booklet (16 pages, format 14×24 cm) which will include paintings inspired by the work of Alessandra Celletti, made by Leila Gabellini (Alessandra’s mother and painter) and fragments of drawings by Alessandra as a child.

MOTHER (music: Alessandra Celletti – lyrics: Pietro Lanzara) At five o’ clock in the evening Sacagewa was in labour Mister Jussome suggested To give her a potion Of the rattle of snakes Captain Lewis had given him And he gave her two rings Broken in pieces with fingers Ten minutes later She delivered her first child I was born into the wild Mother out there is craying from pain Mother out there is weeping She’s holding me in her lap From inside I’m just learning How to dry all her tears How to change them in pearls How to listen to her singing And reward with a smile That old dear lullaby My mother was only sixteen But she was already a Queen A garland of heater hangs down On her black hair like a crown I was born in water and salt By the mouth of a snake Two rings of his skin Were given to us Through death or separation We‘ll share our love She’ll carry me on her shoulders From the Rocky Mountains To the Oceans of whales There’s no time to sleep While she hugs me and kiss me There’s no cradle in the wild For a little Indian child Mother as sweet as flowers Mother I was born among weeds My mother and I will walk Along the mourning river, Flowing gently down the valley
