Man of romantic songs comes to city
Renowned artist Salvatore Adamo will perform the closing concert of the season at Istanbul’s CRR.One of the world’s best-known singers of romantic songs, Salvatore Adamo, will perform in Istanbul on May 31 at the Cemal Reşit Rey (CRR) Concert Hall.
Born in 1943 on the island of Sicily, Adamo climbed to the top of the French music charts with the song “Sans Toi Ma Mie,” released in 1963. After taking the stage at the Olympia in 1965, Adamo became a world star. His songs were translated into many languages during his music career. “Tombe la Neige” has been re-recorded by over 500 singers from different parts of the world.
Some of his songs were translated into Turkish by Fecri Ebcioğlu and made into a Turkish record by Adamo that broke sales records. Ebcioğlu translated Adamo’s “Tombe La Neige” as “Her Yerde Kar Var,” “Amour Perdu” as “Sen Sevme Beni,” and “Crier ton nom” as “İsmini Haykırıyorum” into Turkish.
Known as one of the most commercially successful singers in Europe for his French songs, his albums have sold over 100 million around the world.
Adamo currently lives in Belgium. Adamo was awarded the Golden Record Award in France for his “De toi a moi” album released in 2010, and his recent album, “La Grande Roue,” was released in 2012.
Adamo has volunteered for many relief organizations as an envoy for UNICEF.
The May 31 concert in Istanbul, which will start at 8 p.m., will bring down the curtain on the season at CRR.
