Biography

Parchis was created in 1979, after executives from the Belter Records company placed a newspaper ad in Barcelona, asking children to attend auditions to form a musical group. At first, Belter Records intended to employ the group members during summers only; the company’s executives figured out that would be the best season of the year for Parchis albums and concerts to sell.

Parchis was neither a boy or girl band, initially having four members, two from each gender. Eventually, the band expanded to have six members at the same time. Gemma Prat, Oscar Ferrer Cañadas, Constantino Fernández Fernández better known as Tino (singer) and Yolanda Ventura Roman (daughter of the well known trompetist, Rudy Ventura) were the first four kids to be chosen as members of Parchis.

Parchis’ first single, “En La Armada”, was a Spanish version of the Village People’s disco hit, “In the Navy”. “En La Armada” became a major hit in Spain, giving way for a number of important music composers to start working with Parchis. “En La Armada” was followed by what was arguably the group’s biggest hit, “Durante la Espera de Parchis” (“During Parchis’ Wait”). This song became a number one hit in Argentina. Later on, the group also became successful in Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and other Latin American countries.
