Folk songs of the Albanians of Italy

The extraordinary collection of popular songs by the Albanians of Italy, Yugoslavia and Albania is finally available in our shop. This project, strongly desired and produced by Donato Meola, involved various Albanian communities to study and collect their popular songs.

Until the eighties, the tradition of singing popular songs on every occasion of banquets was also widespread in Piana degli Albanesi, which was very common in the neighborhood. Often in the evening the Ghitonia (neighborhood) gathered and it was enough that there was a guitar or a beautiful voice to spend an entire evening singing these popular songs. Many also have a vivid memory of music lovers who, if invited, enlivened the evenings with their music and their songs only in exchange for hospitality.

For those who have a vivid memory of this distant time or for those who are curious to discover the folk songs of the Albanians of Italy this CD is truly unmissable and it is really worth having, listening to and enjoying it.

There are twelve beautiful popular songs that will excite you when you listen to them,

Have a good listening
