The tracklist of the album “Dialektos” contains original songs with Neapolitan lyrics such as “Allirallena,” a poem by Totò set to music by De Vito, “Jesce,” a composition by Huw Warren in which “Jesce Sole,” the oldest Neapolitan song from the 1200s, is perfectly embedded. And homage to Brazil, with Chico Buarque‘s “Beatriz,” Hermeto Pascoal‘s “Ginga Carioca,” and an electronic reinterpretation of “Mmiezo o’ ggrano,” with live electronics and prepared piano.
