LEO MARTIN´S ORCHESTRA, Cleopatra, 1959

olmq-271-aolmq-271-bLeo Martin (1924 – 1993) was a Flemish comedian and musician, most famous for being one part of the comic duo Gaston & Leo.

In the late 50s Leo also recorded some  rock´n´roll songs. Strangely this one  about Cleopatra, sung together with actress Chris Sent (1922-1989), is neither in Flemish or French but German.
