Notes & Reviews:

This CD features ten gems of the Canzona Napuletane, sung in the authentic dialetto Napuletano; from the well-known classic Mamma to the ballads Palomma 'e notte and Dicitencello vuje. These songs capture the longing and desperation of immigrants who found themselves strangers in a new land. Written from a predominantly male perspective, the songs have are rarely been recorded by female vocalists. Ms. Lucente's vocals, resonating with the same sentiments of any hot-blooded Italian male, are perfectly complimented by the luscious orchestral arrangements of Ludek Drizhal.
