Maria Mediola, the singer with 70’s disco act Baccara, has died in Madrid at age 69.

Maria formed Baccara with Mayte Mateos in Madrid in 1977. Their song ‘Yes Sir, I Can Boogie’ reached no 1 in the UK and across Europe and no 9 in Australia.

Baccara had a second top 10 hit in the UK with ‘Sorry I’m A Lady’ in 1978. That year Maria and Mayte represented Luxemborg in Eurovision. They came seventh.

Maria left Bacarra in 2008 for health issues. Her replacement Cristina Sevilla wrote on Instagram:

“My dear Maria, I do not have the words,” she wrote on Baccara’s Instagram page. “I can only tell you what I had the opportunity to say so many times in life… I love you.”
