Vera Coomans and Wiet Van de Leest left folkgroup Rum at the late 70's. They want to play something diffrent. Their style was never played before in the Belgian music history. The lyrics were very melancholic or sometimes very depressive. Madou made 1 LP in 1982. No hitsingles but still classic songs : "Witte Nachten" and "Niets is voor altijd". After 1 LP the band split.
25 years later came the LP out on CD. Singer Vera Coomans tours still under the name : Madouce
