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!
You remember Ron Jambo, a great indie pop band from Munich. Yesterday, they sent me an interview, which we worked out in spring 2012 ;)

World Music: How did Ron Jambo become a band?
Just left a band and was looking for people to start something new. Olli moved to Munich in fall 2009 and also needed something to start over, musically speaking. From a bank assistant he somehow got a list of people he knew were looking for a band. Olli mailed me, we both were interested, we jammed and TADA! It worked ;) After rehearsing for almost a year with a drummer I knew from my old band, we found Andy in March 2011 and started to play gigs then.
