His debut album, “63/64″, included his great hit “Tombe la neige” and “Vous Permettez, Monsieur”. With it he became an international celebrity overnight.
In 1965 he performed at Olympia theater in París. Never had an artist received as long an ovation as Adamo did that day. After Jacques Brel nicknamed him as “Love´s Gardener”, Adamo confessed that his talent owed much to the work of other greats such as Victor Hugo and Georges Brassens.
By the beginning of the 70´s, he was already well-known all over the world and his songs were translated into many languages.
In Latin America, songs as “Cae la Nieve” (Tombe la Neige), “Tu nombre” (Ton Nom), “Un Mechón de su Cabello” (Une Meche de Cheveux), “La Noche” (La Nuit), “Mi Gran Noche” (Tenez-Vous bien), “Mis Manos En Tu Cintura” (Mes Mains Sur Tes Hanches”), Porque yo quiero” (Car Je Veux), “Ella…” (Elle), “Inch’allah”, “Es Mi Vida” (C’est ma Vie) and many more became instant classics.
In Japan the translation of “Tombe la Neige” into Japanes (“Youki Wa Furu”) became a Christmas standard and karaoke favorite.
Adamo´s work has been compared to that of Charles Aznavour and by the end of the 60´s he was the world´s best selling artist after The Beatles.
“Cae la nieve”, “Mis manos en tu cintura”, “Mi gran noche” and “Inch´Allah” are some of the songs Adamo has recorded for Divucsa.
