  2. Hi Radha, Great Blog. Congrats.

    Check out the famous napolitan song – core ‘ngrato. There are a lot of covers but apart from the originial , I love the version by Dominic Chianese. I think it should be on your list.

    Brilliant lyrics and passionate singing.. Italian music at its best.

    Cheers !!
