Long story short, I’ve started having Italian lessons, and my tutor has recommended listening to some music with Italian vocals to help supplement my studies.
He recommend Tiziano Ferro, Andrea Boccelli, Mina and Laura Pausini, who all seem fairly mainstream (not necessarily a bad thing), but I was wondering if anyone on these boards had other suggestions? What good stuff is out there?
Surprised Adriano Celentano wasn’t mentioned by your teacher. He is a sort of Italian Johnny Halliday - introduced Italians to rock n’ roll and is insanely popular cutting across generations. This is a great song that Francois Hardy did a version of and there’s also a great English language version called ‘Tar & Cement’:
The only contemporary or non-mainstream Italian stuff I’ve ever found that I like is electronic instrumental stuff so hope this thread throws some stuff up.
