Biography
Niagara is a French synthpop duo formed in Rennes in 1984.

Niagara, who was known under the name L’Ombre Jaune from 1982 to 1984, was formed in Rennes, France, in 1984, by vocalist Muriel Laporte (later known as Muriel Moreno) and keyboardist Daniel Chenevez. Niagara achieved popularity both in France and Canada, mainly from 1986 to 1989.

Niagara 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”.

Niagara’s second and most popular release was the album Quel Enfer (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 (1990) (which introduced a harder-edged sound to their music) and La Vérité (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.
