You only think you know what Italian music sounds like. Italy is a long country with twenty different regions which were not unified into one country until the mid-nineteenth century. Each region has a distinctive cultural identity and diverse musical roots. The music ranges from the very European songs and dances of the northern
Italy to the Arabic sounding music of the south. There are French Provincial influences in some regions, Slavic and Greek influences along the Adriatic, and the unique sounds of Sardinia and Sicily. • 1. Tarantella Calabrese - Daniel Sepe • 2.
