Did you ever notice that the glamour-pop singer Rihanna is from Barbados? I didn’t so far! But she was born in Saint Michael on Barbados in 1988. Today, she’s best known for pop, R&B and even dancehall and hip-hop music and as an actress. Of course, her music reaches the charts regulary and won already many awards. Here’s a great remix(I prefer the remix instead the original) of her song “Umbrella”. Updated song for you!

Yao Bobby is a west african rap and hip-hop musician, who released his first solo album ‘Histoires d’un continent’ in 2012. Before this he was the former of the first rap crew in Togo, Djanta Kann. His new album is an awesome mix of world, traditional western african instruments accompanied by his great voice. All in all it’s great traditional mixed with some rap. My favourite song is “Memoire d’un continent”:
“For all lovers of African Music, Yao Bobby is a must listen. His spoken words, rap and traditional sounds are still amazing. Try the journey!”
Listen to the awesome good full album ‘Histoires d’un continent’:
