Alice & Franco Battiato – I Treni Di Tozeur

Written by

“I treni di Tozeur” (“The trains of Tozeur”) is an Italian song, written by Franco Battiato, Rosario Cosentino and Giusto Pio. It was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1984, performed in Italian (with some lyrics in German) by Alice and Franco Battiato.

In a studio version sung only by Battiato, the song was later to be included on his album Mondi Lontanissimi (1985) and was subsequently also recorded in English and Spanish language versions as “The trains of Tozeur” and “Los trenes de Tozeur” and featured on albums Echoes of Sufi Dances and Ecos de Danzas Sufi respectively. In 1994 Battiato recorded an interpretation of the song with a symphony orchestra for his live album Unprotected.
