I’ve just bought this CD by singer Noa which is entitled “Noapolis: Noa sings Napoli”.
Basically Noa sings, or I should say reinterprets, songs from the music tradition in Naples mixed with her personal touch and modern sounds.
I really like the song “Nini Kangy” which Noa sings in Jewish. The origin of the title comes from ”Lili Kangy”, a song written by the two famous Neapolitan singers Giovanni Capurro and Gambardella. It is the story of Concetta, a young woman who decides to change her name into ”Lilì Kangy” – where kangy is a play on words referred to the Frech translation of Concetta.
