This network helped release the song "La bamba". La bamba won the Grand Prix of the l'Académie Française du disque.

But the real breathrough came with "Pepito", which launched them onto the international scene in 1961. This was followed by many hits thanks to the exceptional and particularly expressive voice of Julia Cortes. Their repertoir is composed of light, dancable songs. But it is varied and comprises also South American folklore and songs written by the great names of the French chanson such as Charles Aznavour or Léo Ferré. Read more on Last.fm.
