Bella Ciao is an Italian protest folk song dating back to the late 19th century when women workers in paddy fields, who were known as mondina, would sing it to describe their hardships.
During the Second World War, the song was modified and used by the anti-fascist Partisan movement in Italy.
Under the Khaki Studio initiative launched in 2022, the Mumbai police band has also performed the James Bond theme music and a rendition of A R Rahman's Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.Click for more trending news
