Nico Fidenco (artistic name Domenico Colarossi; born January 24, 1933, in Rome) is an Italian singer who gained considerable popularity from 1960 onwards, after the release of the film What a sky (Italian: Su nel cielo, taken from the film of Francesco Maselli I Delfini).
Self-taught in music, Fidenco did a few cover versions of film title songs for the Italian market. This interest in cinema led him to be a prolific soundtrack composer, including scores for many Joe D'Amato films.
His film credits include the scores to In a Colt's Shadow (1965), Star Pilot (1966), The Texican (1966), Bang Bang Kid (1967), Supermen Against the Orient (1973), Monika (1974), Black Emanuelle (1975), My Sister in Law (1976), Emanuelle in Bangkok (1976), Emanuelle in America (1977), Emanuelle Around the World (1977), Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977), Emanuelle and the White Slave Trade (1978), Candido Erotico (1978), Images in a Convent (1979), Zombie Holocaust (1980) and Porno Holocaust (1981).
