Highly talented and energetic family group from Madagascar who were huge in Western Europe throughout most of the 60's. They brought much happiness to millions . Time for a Les Surfs revival !! Les Surfs,4 brothers and 2 sisters ( Rocky,Coco,Dave,Pat,Monique and Nicole) from a family of 12 children (les Rabaraona) were born in Madagascar.Making their first appearances under the name "Rabaraona frères et soeurs",they won first prize in an amateur singing contest organized by national radio station "Radio Tananarive" by doing 2 of The Platter's greatest hits "Only you" et "The great pretender".After this success the goup toured Madagascar under the name of "Les Béryl".They also recorded their first record in Tananarive (Petite fleur,Marin and Les trois cloches). At the demand of the French goverment they were chosen to represent Madagascar at the opening ceremony of the second French television station in Paris in september 1963 and from their first appearance there the French audience were in love with them (the fact that they were so small,average height of the group was between 1,43 and 1,55 meters,must have endeared them as much as their music).They got a record-deal from French label Festival and from then on were called LES SURFS. Their first European record was released in september 1963 during their first tour in France with Sheila and Frank Alamo. Their song "Reviens vite et oublie",a French-language version of "Be my baby",stayed in the top of the hit-parade for 3 months in France,Spain and Mexico (Spanish version).In 1964 after having performed at the Olympia in Paris (Les idoles des jeunes),Les Surfs were declared revelation of the year. The folowing years they toured all over the world and appeared on many television shows in the company of the biggest names.They recorded songs in French,Italian,Spanish,English and German.They also appeared in 2 movies:"Cherchez l'idole" with Frank Fernandel and Dany Saval, and "Le dernier tiercé" with Dario Moreno and Odile Versois. In 1971,after a long tour,Les Surfs split up.Today the four brothers live in Montréal,Canada (only Rocky is still performing),the sisters have sadly passed away.And now for a nice international mix of some rarer tracks...
