The Lyrics for our East Harlem Giglio Songs have been translated and uploaded to our website!

One of the great parts of the East Harlem Giglio Feast is the amazing voice of gifted tenor and Gilio member Jimmy Alleva and the music of Danny Vecchiano and his Giglio Band.

The songs sung throughout Giglio Sunday are an important part of our tradition and feast. If you ever wanted to  sing along, now you can!

We have posted the lyrics to two of our songs, the 106 Street song and the 108 street song on our website.  Since the songs are sung in the native Neapolitan dialect, we even translated it into standard Italian, and into English!

Click the below links to read the lyrics!
