Dalida: The exotic chanteuse (3.)

Iolanda wanted to present her new musical style at the Olympia: But the owner of the Olympia, Bruno Coquatrix, did not believe that she would attract the audience with her new style. Dalida herself was also doubtful: she was not sure if her audience, used to chansons like Bambino, would accept melancholic chansons.

The success of Bambino was enormous: she received a gold record for 300,000 sold records of Bambino. But at this point Dalida’s journey of success was far from over.
Lucien Morisse, her lover and also her manager, landed a second hit with her: Gondolier.
The song was written in French and Italian – which improved the chances for success. The plan worked: Gondolier became Dalida’s second big hit – this time the song also enjoyed great success in Italy.

It was a life marked by the longing for love: the life of Iolanda Cristina Gigliotti. Under her stage name Dalida, she became world famous.
She sang in no less than ten languages and was admired by a wide audience.
Her image: the “Madonna”. There were critics who compared Dalida to a beauty from ancient Egypt.
But who was Iolanda Gigliotti? 

Michael Jackson: His lost legacy

Michael Jackson – his hits: Billie Jean, Man In The Mirror or They Don’t Care About Us. Die-hard fans may recall his poetry apart from his songs, which he immortalized in the poetry collection Dancing The Dream. But what is often completely left out is his work in the visual arts: MJ liked to draw himself, and he also liked to have others draw him.
