    You know me...I love music. These guys are amazing. I have no idea what they are saying, but I know the song. (I'm sure Star will translate.)

    How Cool! If "anni" means years, then these young men are 14 and 15.
    Very talented!

    Are you sure this is Italian? Shoot...I only know English. I just noticed the sign on this video that appeared to be Latin.

    Unfortunately, Latin is now a dead language...

    This is a traditional Neapolitan song (according to www.about.com).

    English Translation
    What a wonderful thing a sunny day
    The serene air after a thunderstorm
    The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
    What a wonderful thing a sunny day.
    But another sun,
    that’s brighter still
    It’s my own sun
    that’s in your face!
    The sun, my own sun
    It’s in your face!
    It’s in your face!
    When night comes and the sun has gone down,
    I start feeling blue;
    I’d stay below your window
    When night comes and the sun has gone down.
    But another sun,
    that’s brighter still
    It’s my own sun
    that’s in your face!
    The sun, my own sun
    It’s in your face!
    It’s in your face!


    I loved hearing the magnificent Sophia Loren say during an interview "I'm not Italian, I'm Neapolitan!".

    I keep researching this kid...I guess that's what you do when you don't have cable. His name is Jacopo Menconi...what a talent. He's been performing since about 8 years old.
