Biography

In 1963, two groups -The Runaways ( Mike Koegel, Miguel Vincens and Pablo

Sanllehi ) plus the Sonors ( Manolo Fernandez and Tony Martinez) would

combine to form what became the legendary Spanish group Los Bravos,

produced by Alain Milhau..

In 1966 the group, fronted by re-named singer Mike Kennedy, would reach the

number 1 spot in 28 countries including Italy, France, Germany and Sweden with

their classic song “ Black is Black” . The song also reached the number 2

position in the U.K and number 8 in the USA. Other international hits

followed, including “ Bringing in the Loving”,”People Talking Around”

and “Ma Marimba” penned by Harry Seur who had meanwhile replaced Mike

Kennedy as the group’s new front man.

Los Bravos, like many groups , have seen a lot of changes in line up during their

years together, particularly with singers . At various times, Andy Anderson, Bob

Wright and Harry Seur ( now Ari Seur ) have sung with the group, while Mike

Kennedy has left and returned on more than one occasion. Apart from singing on

“Black is Black”, Mike also featured on “Bringing in the Loving”, “ Trapped” and

“Lamoto”, plus featuring in the groups first screen appearance : the film ” Los

Chicos con Las Chicas”. However, Mike and the group have now been officially

separated since 1987.

The result of a longstanding friendship between Pablo Sanllehi , Miguel Vicens

and later Ari Seur , now resident in the U.K, would give rise to

the project that marks the latest phase in Los Bravos’ story.

In September 2009, The group began working with producer Tony Diaz in

London on a collection of songs, featuring re - workings of old favourites,

plus new material. The result is a new offering entitled “ Camden”, after the part

of London where singer Ari lives, but mainly because the ideas for the new

project originated there.

The C/D , recorded in two different London locations, has been created with the

help of some other London based musicians. Ric Williams ( key boards/ and

synthesizers ) features on “ Black is Black” and “Por la Busca del Sol”, while

Stephane Bourquin is responsible for the acoustic and electric guitars on “Al

Amanacer” and “Que Calor! “and Antonio Pedroro provides the sax.

The groups latest line up is :Pablo Sanllehi - drums, Miguel Vicens – bass guitar,

and Ari Seur – vocals. plus electric guitar on all songs.
