BiographyThey became famous in France when they issued in 1985 their first single, "Tchiki boum", which was followed in the summer 1986 by their second single, "L'amour à la plage".
200,000 copies of each single were sold in France, becoming both silver disc.
Driven by exotic-looking Laporte's charisma and singing ability, the duo released their first album in 1986, Encore un dernier baiser which included their first two hits and a new single, "Je dois m'en aller".
Their second and most popular release was the album Quel enfer in 1989 ; the video for the lightweight "Soleil d'hiver" received frequent airplay in Canada, leading to the group forming a following in North America.
Also in 1989, their singles "J'ai vu" and "Pendant que les champs brûlent" became minor hits in central Europe.Niagara released two more albums: Religion in 1990 (which introduced a harder-edged sound to their music) and La Vérité in 1992 before the band (and the real-life couple of Laporte/Moreno-Chenevez) separated.
Both musicians went on to solo careers.
In 2002, a compilation entitled Flammes was released (also released as double CD and DVD), containing all the band's hits.
It hit No. 1 for three weeks on the French Compilations Chart.
