What is Musica italiana?

Musica italiana is an internet radio station that plays Italian folk and ethnic music. We are the best place to hear the best Italian roots music.

We play "musica etnica italiana", or Italian folk music. It is Italian music based on traditional Italian tunes, melodies, or instruments. It may be purely traditional, or it may be contemporized, but our goal is to always play music that is interesting, authentic, or both.

While you will only hear Italian music on Musica italiana, you will not hear ALL Italian music. There are many talented pop, rock, jazz, and classical Italian artists who we will probably not play (e.g. Zucchero, Laura Pausini, le Vibrazioni, and others) because they are not typically known for playing roots or folk music.

So, who ARE we likely to play? Artists like Acquaragia Drom, Alberto Balia, Aramire, Asteriskos, Baraban, Daniele Sepe, Elena ledda, Enzo Avitabile, La Ciapa Rusa, Lucilla Galeazzi, Luisa Cottifogli, Marlevar, Massimo Ferrante, Mazapegul, Musicalia, Radicanto, Re Niliu, Riccardo Tesi, Ritmia, Rosapaeda, Spaccanapoli, Tancaruja, Tenores di Bitti, TerraGnora, Tuscae Gentes, and many others.
