Jalisse is an Italian duo, excisting of Alessandra Drusian and Fabio Ricci. The two met in 1990, when they both had a solo career, but decided to start working as a duo in 1993. They participated in San Remo Giovani in 1995, which gave them the right to participate in the festival of San Remo in 1996. In 1997 they participated again and they won with the song “Fiumi di parole”. This gave them the right to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest, where they got a 4th place! It gave them the opportunity to perform in the USA, Canada, Russia and Chile. Unfortunately the next year their song was rejected for the festival of San Remo. Alessandra started a career as an actress in 2001.
The couple released four albums and a lot of singles. They toured throughout Europe and attended Eurovision events like the Dutch event ‘J’aime la Vlie’ in 2018.
