Sergio y Estíbaliz

Sergio Blanco Rivas (born 17 November 1948, Bilbao) and Estíbaliz Uranga Amézaga (born 9 December 1952, Bilbao), known professionally as Sergio y Estíbaliz, are a Spanish vocal duo, active since the late 1960s, who have also worked with groups Mocedades and El Consorcio. They are also known for their participation in the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest.

Having met in 1968, the couple joined vocal group Mocedades, with whom they recorded three albums before leaving in 1972 to concentrate on a career as a duo. They released their first self-titled album the following year, which proved a success and was followed by further albums at approximately yearly intervals throughout the 1970s.

In 1975 Sergio y Estíbaliz were chosen internally by broadcaster TVE as the Spanish representatives for that year's Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Tú volverás" ("You Will Return"). At the 20th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Stockholm on 22 March, "Tú volverás" placed 10th of the 19 entries.[1] The song became a major hit both in Spain and Latin America, where they became very popular, leading to the release of an album of Latin American songs in 1977.

The couple had married in 1975, and took a career break in the early 1980s during which Estíbaliz gave birth to a daughter. Returning in 1983, they again began releasing albums on a regular basis, with 1985's Cuidado con la noche proving the most successful of their career. Their last album as a duo was released in 1992.

Since 1993 the duo have been members of the group El Consorcio which also includes former Mocedades members Amaya and Iñaki Uranga (sister and brother to Estíbaliz) and Carlos Zubiaga. El Consorcio remain active and have released eight albums to date.
