    Vangarde, Daniel

    Born as Daniel Bangalter, he is a French composer and producer who is mainly associated with his work in Latin and Europop/disco music and released his own songs including "Canada" in 1976.  He produced the Martinique group, Gibson Brothers in the mid 1970s, who were successful throughout Europe with songs he had co-written, such as "Cuba" and "Ooh! What a Life".    He has co-written with composers such as Jean Kluger, Alec Francfort (aka Alex Gibson) and Edward Heyman and his music has appeared in films including North Dallas Forty and 54.  He has worked with many Latin artists including Dalida and the group Ottawan who had a hit with his "D.I.S.C.O.".  His son is the movie producer and director Thomas Bangalter, who is also a member of Daft Punk.
