Malicorne was a French electric folk group that flourished in the 70s. The band was formed by Gabriel and Marie Yacoub in 1973. Gabriel had been a member of Alan Stivell's band, and Marie's vocals have often caused the band to be called a French equivalent of Steeleye Span. The group has been through a number of phases and styles since then, and remains active beyond 2000.
