Miranda is a French Eurodance group, popular in Europe in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The main frontwoman of the group was the French Spanish singer and dancer Sandra Miranda García (born in Paris, France on 24 January 1976). The band also had and was signed to Universal Records.

History[edit]

In 1998, Miranda was taking part as a dancer to the video clip of Ricky Martin's song, "María", when she met producers Louis Element and Johnny Williams. Their first release was in 1999, when they released the first single from their first and only album Fiesta, "Vamos a la playa". The song became a summer hit in the Netherlands and Italy.[1] In 2000, they released two singles, "Eldorado" and "A la fiesta", the latter of which peaked at number 66 on the Dutch Singles Chart.[2] They released one further song, the non-charting "Bamba! (El Ritmo De Miranda)".

In 2001, Miranda disbanded and main singer signed with the label Do It Yourself for a solo career.
