Big In Italy: Zucchero

Click to enlarge

Our noontime Sound Travels went with a cover of a classic Latin tune; "Guantanamera," by Italian blues-rocker Zucchero. Despite the language difference, he carries the tune very well and even got some help from Spanish singer Bebe. Zucchero, as it turns out, is a big deal in his native Italy and has shared the stage with international stars like Elton John, Eric Clapton and even Ray Charles. That's pretty good company to keep.

Peep him performing it live...
