Al Bano, the famous Italian singer, interprets Charles Goodger song about Latvia

Al Bano is one of Italy’s best known singers. He is famous for his amazing tenor voice and songs such as Felicità, performed with his partner Romina Power. His latest single was written by FunSongs founder Charles Goodger and is entitled Terra d’Ambra e di Emozioni. You can hear it on all digital stores (Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Tidal, Google Music) and many radio stations around the world. The song recounts the beauty, traditions and spirit of Latvia and its people in Italian and English. About the song, its composer Charles Goodger comments: “One day, when living in Riga, a teacher who uses FunSongs action songs in her classes, asked me to compose a song about Latvia, so Land of Amber, Land of Song was born. Back in Italy, I collaborated with lyricist Alberto Zeppieri to make a version in Italian entitled Terra d’Ambra e di Emozioni. Al Bano, also charmed by Latvia, listened to it and recorded it”.
