So who says disco is dead? I'm not 100% sure whether Boney M was disco or pop. But they made a good sound back in the 70's. They still sound fine today if you are in the right mood.
Boney M. is a pop and disco group created by record producer Frank Farian. Originally based in West Germany, the four original members of the group's official lineup were Bobby Farrell (Aruba), Liz Mitchell (Jamaica), Marcia Barrett (Jamaica) and Maizie Williams (Montserrat).
Boney M. became one of the few Western groups at that time to become well-known in places such as Africa, the Arab countries, China, Iran, Southeast Asia, India, Eastern Europe, Pakistan and the Soviet Union. To this day, along with Swedish pop group ABBA, they are among the most widely known 1970s Western music acts in these regions. [Wikipedia]
