Hey, I'm trying to learn Italian right now and one of the things that I've been recommended is to immerse myself in as much Italian culture as possible to get the pronunciation right before I get bad habits. Well, other than the weekly broadcasts I pick up from RAI in Canada, and some Saturday morning shows, I'm pretty much lost. I'd like some suggestions of contemporary Italian music to listen to. I'm not ready for opera yet :o and I couldn't stand more than 30 seconds of Eiffel 65. I downloaded some Tiziano Ferro and Eros Ramazotti and Tiziano's awesome :p Please, some suggestions. What's popular in Italy right now?

Well, yeah.
I think your should listen to Laura Pausini and Nek. They should be pretty easy to understand.
I love Tiziano Ferro.
Elisa sings in italian though. Except that one song.
Francesco Renga just won the most importan Italian music Festival. But I dont like him.
It really depends on which kind of music you like.
What do you prefer?

listen to Loredana Bertè

I love Loredana, the former Fru Björn Borg! Her sister Mia Martini was also a great artist (gravelly harrowed voice with tonnes of emotion) . Other divas worth listening to are: Fiorella Mannoia (very rich voice), Antonella Ruggiero (unique ethereal sound), Anna Oxa (ballsy voice with a big range), Alexia, Giorgia (both a bit bluesy), Laura Pausini (very pure voice) and Patty Pravo (husky). Luca Barbarossa, Raf, Nek and Eros Ramazotti are all male singers who've done some good stuff.

From the 1960s, Ornella Vanoni, Luigi Tenco and Mina (of course) are my personal faves.

Italian music is wonderful!

if I were you i'd start with "classic" pop singers......
for example:
Mina (she is the greatest Italian pop singer ever...)
Riccardo Cocciante
etc

Oh, I like Adriano Celentano (the song is in napolitan but the duet Che t'aggia di with Mina is great) and Antonello Venditti...
Io mi ricordo quattro ragazzi con la chitarra...

Venditti's "Ricordati di Me" is a great song. I forgot to mention Marco Masini, another great male vocalist (perchè lo fai...).

Thanks a lot guys, my bitcomet will be busy over the next few days :tape:

Do you know of any online message boards in Italian? I'm doing all this because of this exchange that's offered from my uni to Siena...and frankly I can't think of a better way of spending a year than speaking that beautiful language, feasting on the delicious cuisine, taking in the years of history and culture, oggling the gorgeous men and oh of course, get some studying done :lol:

I'm jealous! Siena is breathtakingly beautiful; I've spent many a moment in the sublime Piazza del Campo just transfixed by the place. If I'd met Mr Right in Tuscany, I'd never have left.
