Two Man Sound is a Belgian trio of the 1970s which combined disco rythms with Brasilian beats. They were a successful party-band in who combined disco and Brazilian rhythms and the good-time Latin-American carnival hits. Their biggest hits were: "Copacabana" (1971), "Charlie Brown" (1975), "Que Tal America" (1977) and "Disco Samba" (1978). The group was a mixture of the talents of two famous (at that time perhaps not so famous) Belgian producers. The first was Lou Deprijck (previously with Liberty Six - later on with Lou & the Hollywood Banana's and projects as Viktor Lazlo and Plastic Bertrand), the second Sylvain Vanholmen (previously with The Wallace Collection and Octopus, later with The Machines, Jo Lemaire & Flouze).

On the US Dance chart, the single, "Capital Tropical" was the most successful of two entries peaking at #11. The medley "Disco Samba" became a huge European hit in the early 1980s, with repeated hit-listings in euro-charts from 1983 through 1986 as well as the official Reza family song.
