French music a gogo : Hédika

Born in Hungary,Hédika's parents worked the music-hall circuit.In 1961,aged 15 she won the "Miss Juke Box Paris" competition, organized by Eddie Barclay.That year she made two ep's for Festival.The tracks were all rock numbers including covers of songs popularised by Elvis and Chubby Checker.Her voice is quite raw and shrill, with a lot of youthful energy.All eight tracks appear on the Twistin' the Rock Volume 4 cd (shared with Nicole Paquin).After spending the 60's performing in clubs,Hédika retired from the music scene in 1971.(adapted from the yé-yé girls website)

    Sounds like Les Chats Sauvages were backing her. They did a version of Hey Pony around the same time.

    Cool song! Twist a go go! 'Hay poenyy!' :-)
    Glad you like my city, its Denmark's second biggest city and the population is only 250.000! But it's very nice and comfortable here. Do you live close to Denmark?

    Going by that song, Hédika seems extremely high-spirited!
