The Goombay Dance Band is a German based band of the 1970s created by Oliver Bendt. The band is named after a small bay on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Their music has a distinctive sound (somewhat similar to Boney M. and Ottawan), a mixture of Caribbean soca or calypso and western pop. The group built up a fan base across Europe and in total released some 15 singles between 1979 and 1985, within which time they enjoyed their greatest commercial success. They proved very popular in South Africa too, where "Sun of Jamaica" and "Aloha-Oe" topped the singles charts. "Seven Tears" also charted, while "Rain" and "Eldorado" also proved popular. Their most successful song was "Sun of Jamaica"... Continue Bio >>
