In this video I play a duo arrangement of Tarantella Napoletana on mandolin and octave mandolin.  This Italian Folk Dance is the tarantella associated with Naples. It is familiar to many viewers of popular media as a stereotypically "Italian" musical riff or melody.
In the films The Godfather (Il Padrino) (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1973) tarantella’s are played in the openings scenes.
