I Cigni Di Balaka

Album: Le Piu Canzoni (1987)

Songfacts®:

  • This song, which can be translated as "The Swans Of Balaka", was written by the Italian crooner Al Bano; it was recorded by the man and his wife Romina Power (the daughter of the American actor Tyrone Power), in 1987.
    Although a fairly non-descript duet, it attracted a certain amount of publicity when Bano brought a legal action against Michael Jackson, claiming the American had ripped it off for his song "Will You Be There?" >>
