Henri Belolo

Real Name:
Henri Belolo
Profile:
French music executive, record producer and songwriter (November 27, 1936, Casablanca, Morocco - August 3, 2019, France), best known for his partnership with Jacques Morali and their contribution to the disco craze of the late '70s / early '80s with acts such as The Ritchie Family and Village People.
Belolo began working for Eddie Barclay before joining Polydor as A&R and producer in 1960. He then founded Carabine and moved to the US in 1973, where he met Morali and set up Can't Stop Music Productions.
Scorpio Music, the music publisher he founded in the '70s evolved into an independent record company and label specialised in commercial dance music, from early hip hop (Break Machine) to euro-dance (Ilona Mitrecey).
Father of Jonathan Belolo and Anthony Belolo.

cool guy

He and MORALI are/were both of moroccan jewish descent !

They were the kings of the 70s and 80s dance music and beyond that their YMCA and GO WEST (especially in the PET SHOP BOYS version) are club classics
