Marco Calliari's secret to success

MARCO_001_WEB_5X7_72dpi.jpgIt's not often that an album sells 40,000 copies in Quebec. It's even rarer to do that with an album entirely in Italian. But that's what Montreal singer-songwriter Marco Calliari just pulled off.
He has two other albums in his own Italo-Quebecois dialect that have also sold tens of thousands of copy.
But it's his second album Mia Dolce Vita, with his versions of traditional songs, that's been really popular and with French-speaking Quebeckers!
He's celebrating the coup with a show at the Cabaret du Mile End  next Friday.
Marco Calliari spoke with Sonali Karnick.
