Italian Folk Songs

The folk songs and the dialect unique to many small villages of Italy have managed to survive transplantation to American cities. Although second—and third—generation Italian Americans might begin to forget traditions, new waves of immigrants have refreshed interest within the Italian communities. These songs were collected in neighborhoods of Chicago and New York in 1963 and 1964.
