Zucchero

One of Italy’s biggest pop exports, Zucchero is influenced by American blues, soul, and rock and he has recorded or toured with Eric Clapton, Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Sting, and Solomon Burke, among others. Zucchero (who was born Adelmo Fornaciari) began his singing career in the ‘70s but first became known in Italy through other artists’ versions of his songs. In the ‘80s, he became a star in his own right and he crossed over to the U.K. market in the early ‘90s via a duet with Paul Young. Over the course of his career, Zucchero has sold more than 40 million records, been nominated for a Grammy, and won numerous awards, including two World Music Awards and six IFPI Europe Platinum Awards.
