Hello Everyone, New Video!

A wonderful Italian song about the part of Italy which my family comes from, and my Grandfather Mario Grimaldi's favorite song.

Written by Ernesto de Curtis
Performed for Solo Guitar by Joey Grimaldi

Check out the description on youtube for lyrics in original Neapolitan and translation in English.

Very lovely playing on this Italian classic, not heard very often on classical guitar, but it sounded really good! Thank you for uploading the video.
