Al Bano (real name: Albano Carrisi) was born on May 20, 1943 in Cellino San Marco, Italy, and made his debut as a singer in 1966. In 1970 he married Romina Power (October 2, 1951), an Italian / American actress and singer. The duo is particularly popular in Italy and Germany.

They attended the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest, where they represented Italy with the song ‘No Lo Rivivremo Di Nuevo’ (We’ll Live It All Again). They finished seventh of the 18 participating countries. In the summer of 1976, the French version of the song, entitled ‘T’aimer Encore Une Fois’, appeared in the Dutch Tipparade.
In 1982 they scored a top 10 hit in the Netherlands with ‘Felicità’, a song that reached second place at the famous San Remo festival that year.
The successor ‘Sharazan’ reached # 9 in the Top 40 a few weeks later.

The duo primarily recorded in Italian but have also released a great number of records in Spanish and French. They participated twice in Eurovision Song Contest in 1975 and 1985 and performed five times at Sanremo Music Festival, winning in 1984 with the song «Ci sarà». The couple also shot seven films, based on their songs, between 1967 and 1984. The two separated and divorced in 1999, but reunited professionally in 2013 and their comeback gig at Moscow Crocus City Hall grossed 10 million euros.
