Patricia Carli

Born 12/03/1942, Taranto, Italy.

Patricia was an Italian yé-yé girl, who used to live in Belgium, before moving to France in 1963. Signed to the Bel-Air label, she got a hit with her second EP 'Demain Tu Te Maries'. Her song 'Non ho l'eta' per amarti' was entered in the 1964 Eurovision Song Contest and won the grand prize at the San Remo Festival in the same year. After recording a handful of singles, Patricia, who wrote most of her own material, stopped performing and became a successful writer for other singers (Nicoletta, Dalida, Claude Francois, Annabel Buffet...)

Hi, I'm italian, maybe the city in which she is been born is "Taranto", there is not a city with the name of "Toranto" in Italy.

Thank you Italianbeat, I've corrected it.. good to see some italians here ;)

Hi!

There's a mistake I think: "non ho l'età" was sung by Gigliola Cinquetti, not by Patricia Carli...

I had the chance to find a Patricia Carli 45 EP a few years ago and bought it just out of curiosity. Je Suis A Toi was a nice discovery then.
Demain Tu Te Maries was covered here by Ginette Ravel, adding more drama to the song. Yet, I hadn't heard it with by Carli. ;-)
Thanx for posting it!
