Query:   With apologies about the somewhat frivolous nature of the request, a
former student of mine has asked me to identify the language in which
this song, sang by her father in the nineteenseventies, is sung.
Unfortunately, the recording is only nine seconds long. The father's
origin is Italian, Piedmontese, to be more precise, but the song doesn't
seem to be in any Italian dialect I am aware of.

The sound clip can be downloaded at the following address.

Please direct your replies directly to me and I will forward them to the
student. Thank you.
