Ottawan is a French group, more precisely a duo composed of the singers Jean Patrick and Annette. It all starts when Jean Patrick, a singer of Guadeloupean origin decides to come to Metropolitan France to try his luck. He then founded with a friend named Annette the group "Black Underground". It is producer Daniel Vangarde who spots them and has them signed, a fan of their boundless energy and this music strongly inspired by the islands. The group was quickly renamed "Ottawan" in reference to the Canadian capital Ottawa. It was in 1979 that everything accelerated when the huge hit "D.I.S.C.O" was released, which very quickly became a planetary hit.

Clips :

1979 ... the interplanetary tube which will smash everything and raise One Shot the members of the group to the rank of planetary stars. Surely one of the biggest Dance hits of the 70s !

1980 ... second big hit which makes them definitively enter the musical legend of the 80s

A 3rd mega hit that sits down once and for all the legend, all in this style always as inimitable and which will forever remain their trademark !

1981 ... in the same vein, why change the recipe when it succeeds every time. But difficult to compete with the previous road rollers, it is clear ...

1981 ... always light and dancing songs as it should be. Nothing transcendental but a formidable efficiency !

1982 ... with a samba air ! Brazil, feutcheboal and carnival !

1982 ... a last for the road ? Ok but quickly because it's getting late ...
