Bob Azzam


Bob Azzam (24 October 1925, Cairo - 24 July 2004, Monaco.) was an Egyptian singer of Lebanese ancestry.
He married the solo singer of his orchestra, [a1459482] (Gherardi).
Azzam began his career in Italy in the late 1950s, with his band, singing in Italian and in English. In 1960, he released two songs in France that were influenced by oriental music, "Ya Mustafa" (Chérie je t'aime, chérie je t'adore, como la salsa de pomodoro) and "Fais-moi du couscous, chérie". The same year, he received the Grand Prix du Disque for the song "Viens à Juan les Pins".
After this era, his success began to decline. However, Azzam continued his career by touring with his orchestra, and opened his own night club in Geneva.
