HCMC - Boney M, one among the legendary names from the 70s disco era, will perform in the “Summer Fire - Boney M” program at Vinpearl Nha Trang on August 10, 2018.

The band will sing their huge international hits such as “Rivers of Babylon”, “Daddy Cool”, “Bahama Mama” and “Sunny.”

This will be Boney M’s second show in Vietnam after their impressive performance at My Dinh National Convention Center in October 2016, according to Nguoi Lao Dong online newspaper.

Boney M is a Euro-Caribbean vocal group created by German record producer Frank Farian in 1975. Originally based in West Germany, the four original members of the group's official line-up were Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett from Jamaica, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell, a Dutch singer with Aruban ancestry.

After more than 40 years with many times of splitting up as well as re-grouping, lead vocalist Liz Mitchell remains in the line-up till now.

The band has sold more than 80 million records worldwide. They are the only artists to appear twice in the top 11 best selling singles of all time in the UK, with “Rivers of Babylon” in seventh place and “Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord” at number 11. They are also among six artists to sell a million copies with two singles in the same year.

In Vietnam, Boney M’s joyful and ear-catching music is popularly played at parties. Their most favorite songs in the country include “Ma Baker”, “Gotta Go Home”, “Rasputin”, “Brown Girl in the Ring”, “Hooray! Hooray! It’s a Holi-Holiday”, “Jingle Bells”, “Mary’s Boy Child” and “Petit Papa Noel.”
