Zucchero, from its true name Adelmo Fornaciari was born on September
25, 1955 in Roncocesi, in Italy. Attracted very young person
by the music, it buys a guitar and forms groups throughout its
years of studies. Thereafter, it takes part in contests of songs
or it interprets its own compositions. However, the chance does
not smile to him and it is only in 1983 that it records its
first album which does not meet that a success of regard. The
real departure of its career with place with the recording of
the album "Blues" in 1987. Italy cracks literally
for this éraillée voice and the album is sold
to more than one million specimens. It connects the exits of
album and share to the conquest of Europe in 1992 by recording
"Italian and English Miserere". The title which gives
its name to the album is recorded in duet with Luciano Pavarotti,
which brings more undeniable to the album and booste the sales.
Zucchero becomes an international high-speed motorboat. From
this moment, it devotes more time to the composition of its
albums: "Blue Sugar" in 98, "Overdose of Amore"
in 99 or "Shake" in 2002 are examples perfect of the
maturity acquired by this soul man. In 2004 Zucchero "Zu
leaves & Co" is a best-of of its best titles interpreted
in duet with Ronan Keating, Miles Davis, Sting, Macy Gray, Sheryl
Crow, Eric Clapton, Tina Arena, Tom Jones, Johnny Hallyday or
Cheb Mami. For its return in 2006 with the album "Fly"
Zucchero was once again surrounded of the best producers and
leaves a perfect disc faithful to its style.
