A new short music video coming out of Temple University’s Rome campus highlights and updates an Italian childhood tradition.  The song featured, “Don Don Baby,” is a short nursery rhyme that is traditionally sung by children while playing hand games. The video is now airing on our broadcast channel between programs.

The song and accompanying video are part of a project by Piccoli Cantori di Milano, The Boy’s Choir of Milan, titled “Giocastrocche: filastrocche per giocare in cortile” (“nursery rhymes to play in the yard”). For their 50 year anniversary, the Choir put together a collection of 70 traditional nursery rhymes and Italian street games and performed them as songs. The video was produced by Roberto Conte.
