Below, some of the more traditional Italian songs, performed by the Orchestra of Italian Renzo Arbore.
This orchestra it's a great performer of Neapolitan music, with amazing arrangements
Finally, I can write about Renzo Arbore.
Renzo Arbore has been the first Italian Dee Jay, together Boncompagni (on radio Rai, 1965) , a showman and a talent-scout, and, of course, a musician; he plays clarinet.
He starts to play in jazz orchestra in his town Foggia, before has been graduated as advocate in Naple, and it's Naple the town and it's the neapolitan music that he loves.
After many years of success, as Radio's Dee Jay, and Tv showman of musical shows, he continues his career alone, as film maker and producer, and in '80's he retourns to make tv-musical and Funny Tv-shows, where he has an incredible success; I remember well my father at midnight to see 'Renzo Arbore' in Rai Tv; there is in these transmissions he discovered artists as Isabella Rossellini and Roberto Benigni, now famouses also in Usa.
On 1991, as clarinet player, he founded 'Orchestra Italiana', where he is the front man.
"Orchestra Italiana" makes concerts where Italian traditional music and Neapolitan music is loved: in all the world!!
The first success, of course has been in Italy, and few years after, in America, but also Canada, Germany, Europe, East Europe and South America.
Now, Renzo Arbore and "Orchestra Italiana", is one of best Italian Traditional music groups, and I'm very happy to be able to show You many songs of them.
