Boney M featuring Marcia Barrett live at American University of Dubai Auditorium on Monday, 27th of October. Boney M. is a German pop and disco group created by West German record producer Frank Farian. The four original members of the group's official lineup were Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett (Jamaica), Maizie Williams (Montserrat), and Bobby Farrell (Aruba). In 1970s Boney M. was the most famous and well-known pop group from Germany.
Boney M., with their bubble-gum infectious tunes, 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 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.
The 2005 Chinese film Shanghai Dreams features a scene depicting a rural Chinese disco in 1983, with teenagers dancing to Rivers of Babylon and Gotta Go Home.
