Kiri te Kanawa - O mio babbino caro - Puccini

Kiri te Kanawa sings O mio babbino caro from Gianni Schicchi composed by Giacomo Puccini.

Te Kanawa was born in Gisborne, on New Zealand's North Island. She has both Māori and European ancestry, but little is known about her birth parents as she was adopted as an infant. She is the adopted daughter of an Irish mother and Māori father. In her teens and early 20s, Te Kanawa was a pop star and popular entertainer at clubs in New Zealand.

Listen and enjoy.
