Unfortunately, in recent years, the influence of the media, have in society, there are less children's songs from Italy and more from international music.
Cartoons, movies and internet affect Our children, most parents do not sing more the old Italian songs, and now the most popular children's songs are translated into Italian from international music.
We must said, however, that institutions such as the Zecchino d'Oro help Our musical tradition...
In Italy, thanks to an accordance between Rai Tv and Piccolo Coro dell' Antoniano, from 50's, in the Italian national Tv, Rai, every year, in november, a sort of 'Sanremo', but only for children is 'on air' (next photo) .
Usually, many Italian children begin their 'first contact' with the music thanks to the Catholic Church.
Is in Catholic churches that form the children's choirs, where the best ones are chosen and made to sing sing. Some of them continue their passion, and become musicians.
The Antonian Choir, is derived from the folk tradition.
|Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano|
The tradition of 'Choirs for childrens' in Italy, is very very old; we can speak about 'sacred music', of middle-ages, but I don't know when that thing exactly started and why.
We can only enjoin with that funny songs, very easy to sing and very helpful to learn Italian language.
Many Italian artists, with time, they sang song for childrens, but there is an artist, who started from very small, just singing in this type of songs, she was 3 years old (on the photo), and continued for the rest of life, and now, we may call, the Italian singer, that has had success with songs for children: Cristina d'Avena .
