Emiliano Loconsolo is one of the few performers today interpreting the poignant and deeply romantic work of legendary Italian folk singer Roberto Murolo, the undisputed master of the canzone popolare. Emiliano performs very special collection of fifteen songs performed by Murolo that were set to poetry written by his father, Ernesto Murolo, one of the most important Neapolitan writers of the late 19th century, and an icon of Italian culture for other artists living in those times. In 2003 Roberto Murolo died at the age 91 leaving a legacy that lay undiscovered in the U.S. until now.
