Italy's popular singer-songwriter Pino Daniele, one of the country's best-loved entertainers, has died aged 59 after suffering a heart attack in the early hours of Monday morning.

A native of Naples, he bought its traditional song to music-lovers countrywide, blending Neapolitan music with jazz, rock and blues.

"I still have his music in my ears, from New Year's Eve," said Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

"Pino Daniele is dead but his music is eternal," tweeted Naples Mayor Luigi de Magistris, saying he would proclaim a day of mourning the day of his funeral.
