Lazio regional songs

The folk music of Lazio has similarities to that of Tuscany, for its typical melancholy, lullabies. The songs in the dialect of Rome often include the "stornello" - a corruption of the term "ritornello" that is refrain, since the first line is repeated. Among the dances the "saltarello" is common, in the past accompanied by bagpipes and tambourine, now mostly by the accordion.
