Karo

Karo (real name Caroline Vallée), was born in 1946 in Sherbrooke Québec, Canada. She started out in Le Trio BAK with (as I understands) yeye girl Renee Martel. They had some minor hits as "Les marionnettes", and "Un jeune homme bien" (those seems impossible to find.. anyone?). In 1966-1967 she recorded of the resumptions of songs for 'Match', a company which specialized in the sale of 45 turns at reduced prices. Later she won first price at a radio concours Decouvertes ("discoveries" of CFTM). Thereafter, she recorded her own composition "Une Garcon en mini-jupe" which gained an immediate success. Karo settled in Montreal and started to occur in cabarets. In 1968 her compositions "Sur ma moto"and "Les Bibittes" came out and the singer participated in the well known Musicorama tour in Quebec.. She is a professor in languages today and has her own school.

An anthology was released in 1999 on Disques Mérite.
