Village People Biography (Wikipedia)

Village People is an American disco group well-known for their on-stage costumes, catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics. The group was originally formed by Jacques Morali, Victor Willis and Henri Belolo following the release of their first album, Village People, which targeted disco's gay audience. The group's name refers to New York City's Greenwich Village, at the time known for its large gay population. The characters were a symbolic group of gay and macho fantasy personas.

The group quickly became popular and moved into the mainstream, scoring several disco and dance hits internationally, including the hit singles "Macho Man", "In the Navy", "Go West" and their biggest hit, "Y.M.C.A.".
