Kids Commute: Neapolitan songs week!
We're spending the last week of Kids Commute this school year learning about songs from Naples, Italy!
Italy is already famous for its longstanding musical traditions, but Neapolitan songs have a rich history all on their own.
They're cultural hallmarks of Italian popular and folk music, and each one tells a story, often about love, nostalgia or homesickness.
Don't miss this week's episodes — we'll hear about an annual song-writing competition from the 1800s, an Italian composer who became the British royal family's "singing master," and more!
Because we love him tons and bunches - 'cause he's so fabulous - all our songs this week will be sung by Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti.
Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 and 3:20, or listen any time below.
