Zucchero

Zucchero "Sugar" Fornaciari, the GRAMMY® nominated Italian blues-rock singer and one of Europe's best-selling artists, is currently touring North America to support his latest album, “La SesiónCubana”. Known as a musical wanderer, Zucchero’s album achieves a long-held dream of recording in Cuba with the best native musicians in Havana, and exploring the roots of American music along the way.

"My music comes from blues, from soul and from gospel," Zucchero says. "This project is a trip from New Orleans to Cuba via Mexicali. Latin, Cuban and Tex-Mex sounds and rhythms melt together dancing. Hasta l'astasiempre."

In addition to the studio album, a deluxe CD/DVD version with the La SesiónCubana studio CD with a two hour Live in Havana DVD is also being released. A one hour version of the Live in Havana concert program will be featured in March by Public Television stations as part of their pledge programs. The program is being presented by WLIW.

During the course of his four-decade career, Zucchero has sold more than 40 million albums around the world and won numerous awards including two World Music Awards and six IFPI Europe Platinum Awards. He was also nominated for a 2007 GRAMMY® Award in the Traditional R&B Vocal category for You Are So Beautiful, the song he performed on alongside Sam Moore, Billy Preston, Eric Clapton and Robert Randolph. Heavily influenced by American blues, soul and rock, he embarked on a singing career in the '70s. He has performed at The Royal Albert Hall in London, the Kremlin in Moscow and Carnegie Hall in New York and has recorded and toured with Eric Clapton, Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Sting and Solomon Burke to name just a few.
