"In 1978 they recorded "Cuba". The mix of disco beats, Latin percussion, soulful vocals and a catchy tune propelled the song to #1 in several countries. Like their other hits, it was written and produced by Daniel Vangarde and Jean Kluger, who also recorded hits by Ottawan, Sheila B. Devotion and others." --Sholem Stein
